  • Kaci X. Tavares writes bilingual poetry that investigates her multicultural identity and how it affects her relationships with languages. She champions literature that adds diversity to the Anglosphere’s literary canon, such as her publication Between the Boxes —  a literary magazine that seeks to legitimise those who live in-between languages, cultures, and nations. When not writing poetry, she blogs on Coloring the Canon.
