Raquel Gutiérrez has long been a writer and liver performer. She is a film actor, curator, chapbook publisher (Econo Textual Objects, established 2014), playwright, arts administrator, and community organizer. She writes about art, culture, music, film, performance, and community building, and creates original solo and ensemble performance compositions. Running In Place: poems about INSTITUTIONALITY is Raquel’s third chapbook released in March 2014, following #WhiteBoo and Breaking Up With Los Angeles (Econo Textual Objects, 2014). She’s had the pleasure of being published in both online and print publications including Huizache; LA Weekly; Artbound; The Portand Review; GLQ; Raspa Magazine; RECAPS and Ambientes New Queer Latino Writing (edited by Lázaro Lima and Felice Picano); and Sinister Wisdom, and in the upcoming summer 2016 journal for Fence Books.
