Deborah Casillas

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Poetry in English

A native Californian, I’m a long-time resident of Santa Fe, a wonderful place to have discovered that I love to write poetry. I have a BA in English from UC Berkeley and an MA in Spanish Language and Latin American Literature from UNAM. Unfortunately the language I worked so hard to learn has almost disappeared. I travel to Spanish-speaking countries, take immersion classes, start to re-learn, then stop speaking again, each time vowing not to lose the scant traces I have left.

This will be my third poetry master class at UTV. I will arrive with a newly published poetry collection, Quiet at the Edge. Several of the poems were written in and about Tepoztlán. I’m excited to be returning and look forward to another mind-enriching experience—always the unexpected waits there.
