Christina Rodriguez

Author's Bio

Christina Rodriguez is a Queens-born Puerto Rican poet and journalist, trying to live this thing called, "The Writer's Life". As an aspiring arts journalist with B.A. in Journalism from Brooklyn College, she blogs about her writing life on her site, The Write Queen (blog.thewritequeen.com). Her writing has appeared in QueensZine, a handful of stones, Daily Love, amphibi.us, High Coup Journal, Train Write, Short, Fast, and Deadly, 50 to 1, fri haiku, rust+moth, Other Rooms Press, Yes, Poetry and the anthologies, pay attention: a river of stones, Old Hollywood, A Thing of Beauty Painted By Words, and Skeletons as well as various college publications. She has written for NYCityWatch.org, the Queensborough Communique, the NYCityBeat Blog, The Brooklyn Kingsman, and Examiner.com. She has currently started her own online media company called Establishing Artists for Tomorrow Media Group, also known as E.A.T. Media. You can access the site at http://www.eatmedia.org. Her hope is not to touch millions with the power of one word, but to touch one with the power of a stream of words. Using the pen name, Demi'urge, she has gotten a bright head start in that goal. Look out for Christina's first chapbook, Late Night Feelings. You can see her progress on the Late Night Feelings' site: http://latenightfeelings.info
