Adela Najarro is the author of four poetry collections: Split Geography, Twice Told Over, My Childrens, and Volcanic Interruptions, a chapbook that includes Janet Trenchard’s artwork.
Adela Najarro's poems have been published in numerous journals and anthologies. Here are a few online samples:
Two Poems by Adela Najarro in The Rumpus
"Los volcánes de Nicaragua" and "En la voz de mi padre" at the Anacua Literary Arts Journal
In this chapbook, Najarro’s poems and Trenchard’s paintings dialog about the feminine as power and lifeforce drawing on vibrant earth energy so that the written word and image come together in conversation.
