CTN’s Poetry Editor for the Journal of Ideas and Pedagogy, Fernando Esteban Flores, published an article in the San Antonio Express News in October titled “Commentary: The Prickly Pear in T.S. Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land.’” In the article he reflects upon his first reading on the poem and its meaning today. The article can be found here:


Also Flores’ poetry was included in the anthology, Lone Star Poetry: Championing Texas Verse, Community, and Hunger Relief, which is available thru Kallisto Gaia Press. This anthology includes 90 poems by 42 poets on many topics, in many forms, and from many locations across Texas, the United States, and the globe. A portion of the proceeds goes to “Feeding Texas”–a network of 21 food banks. Here is the pathway to purchasing: https://www.texaspoetryassignment.org/publications or www.kallistogaiapress.org/shop
