Maegan la Mala at Hispanic PANIC! Tonite in NYC


For the third time, yours truly, VL’s own managing editor, Maegan la Mamita Mala Ortiz will be reading at Hispanic PANIC!, a reading series featuring queer Latino writers hand picked by Charlie Vazquez.
That’s happening tonite
8 pm sharp at Nowhere, 322 e. 14th st, NYC.

Featuring: Orlando Ferrand, Alicia Anabel Santos, Aaron Powell, Maegan La Mala Ortiz, Miguel Angeles, and Cristy Road.

This will be my third PANIC! and I am so excited. I will be reading all unread materials in what I am calling my Spikchick Triptych. You will just have to come and hear if you want to know what the three “panels” are. Charlie, who has been featured here before does a magical job of curating (and sharing his own work). The readers are always amazing and the audience spectacular.

For those who haven’t attended a PANIC! reading before, you can read all about it in this piece that was featured in Viva!, the Latino pullout section of the New York Daily News. The feature article was written by fellow PANIC! writer Erasmo Guerra.

Hope to see some of you there.
