Abstract: In this study, three Latin American creators living in the U.S. share their reflections on writing in Spanish but living in English. Three diverse voices and personalities from three different national backgrounds (Chilean, Colombian, and Cuban) describe their respective—and diverging— personal and professional experiences to help us understand what it means to “write from a place of absence” stemming from distance from their mother tongue and motherlands.
Keywords: absence, poetry, Spanish, English, borders, immigration
