Alexandra Muñoz Avelar
Earnest and direct. Particular and honest. Alexandra Muñoz Avelar is a native Texan currently making a name for herself in the Tulsa, Oklahoma poetry and spoken word scene. Where some poetry aims for the universal, Avelar’s approach to the craft is direct and uninterrupted almost like a beautifully phrased, conceptually structured short story.
Avelar graduated from Northeastern State University nestled in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, the capital of the Cherokee Nation. Majoring in English, and minoring in applied linguistics and creative writing Avelar’s practice is rooted in highly academic theories and artistic canons.
