A Blade of Grass Author
Bogar Alonso is a freelance writer and immigrant poet who was born in Ojuelos De Jalisco, Mexico, raised in the Windy City, and who now resides in Brooklyn. His music journalism has been published in Bitch Magazine, XXL, and Potholes In My Blog – among others; as a Screenwriter, his writing has been screened internationally, including at the 25th Anniversary of the Chicago Latino Festival; and as a politically-charged poet he has performed across New York, most notably at OWS’s Poetry Assembly and as a finalist in Bowery Arts + Science’s “Emerging Artist” competition. In his spare time, he curates the niche Hip Hop website, On The 7th Day of Hip Hop, as Editor-in-Chief, which aims to re-explore the genre as a socially relevant art form. He is patiently waiting for the arrival of US: A Collective, an Immigrant and Pro-Immigrant Art Collective he founded.
