“My teachers were the major miracles of the first contemporary poems I read. I didn’t know they existed. I’d never seen contemporary literature, working class writing, or Native literatures. I came to it suddenly. A single poem. Then another.”  — Linda Hogan

…In Volume 4 of As/Us, its Decolonial Issue, I look at how two new books – SACRED WILDERNESS by Susan Power and RED CAPS by Steve Berman – reflect upon the trajectories of colonized love and reject the notion of affection-by-oppression.

Many thanks to the tireless Tanaya Winder and Casandra Lopez.

           Also featured in this issue are Bojan Louis, Laura Da’, Velma Lee Craig, Celeste Adame, Jerry Brunoe, Trevino Brings Plenty, Tiffany Midge and so many more.

Chael Needle of a&u: America’s AIDS Magazine spoke to me about my story collection, NAMING CEREMONY, in terms of stories of survival.cover

….

“Livingston has a simple manifesto—be true to the story and make it accessible so that, with any luck, the words can move people.”

Back in 1998 a&u was the first magazine to publish my poetry. I’m honored to grace its pages once again, this time talking about my prose.

The print magazine includes a few more photos by Gabriel Padilha.
