Noemi Martinez is a crip queer femme poet-curanderx and writer with magical roots in Mexico and Puerto Rico living in the Rio Grande Valley, in deep South Texas. A long time zinester, Noemi is interested in alt.media, diy, solarpunk, crip futures and cyborg worlds. Her work was saved by her mother on her nightstand, a few of her friends have her books and a few friends might be in possession of her letters. https://twitter.com/hermanaresist
