Letisia Cruz is a Cuban-American writer and artist. She is enthralled by nature and the acute connection to form associated with ink illustration. Her visual vocabulary emerges through this focus and subsequently explores the connection between man and nature. She is a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University’s MFA program and currently lives in Miami, FL. She serves as Resident Artist at Petite Hound Press and Online Poetry TLR SHARE Editor at The Literary Review. Her writing and artwork have appeared in Gulf Stream, Moko Caribbean Arts and Letters, BODY Literature, The Scrambler, and Ink Brick.
