Leticia Hernandez

The daughter of a Salvadoran family, Leticia was born in Los Angeles and has been living, writing and working in San Francisco’s Mission District since 1995. For twenty years, she has been merging music and performance with her writing to communicate a poetry that crosses genre boundaries and geopolitical borders. Interdisciplinary at the core, she has collaborated with many talented visual artists and incorporates digital media, audience interaction, costume and props, and installation in her writing and art. Since 1991, Leticia has worked in various capacities in  arts education, community engagement, and executive leadership. An escaped Ph.d. candidate from the University of Pennsylvania, she has taught university courses in Women Studies, Creative Writing, and Latin@ Literature.  In 2009, she was honored to receive a local hero award from KQED during Latino Heritage Month.
