Rafael will be taliking to Judi Smolker & Deborah Aguilar Escalante Judi Smolker is an up and coming Los Angeles poet who studies Anthropology at UCLA. She has been a featured poet at Velvet Guerilla and Down Home. She studied poetry under Mario Padilla and is influenced by confessional poetry, the beats, Dorothy Parker, Cesar Vallejo and Satan. Just kidding about the Satan part. Kind of. Ms.Smolker has been coined the "Veronica Lake of poetry" because of her sensuous and evocative use of sound and symbol. Judi's blog can be read at www.judisincollege.blogspot.com. Deborah Aguilar Escalante is a graduate student in the M.A. in English/M.F.A. in Creative Writing program at Chapman University in Orange, CA. She enjoys various techniques of poetic style and form, and experiments in using the written word as a form of visual art in her poetry. In 2009, she was nominated for the Associated Writers and Writing Program (AWP) Intro Journals Award. She likes to write about the experience of time and space, where reality and the supraconscious fuse to explore the mind.
