Hija de inmigrantes salvadoreños que huyeron de la guerra y criada en un barrio del oeste de Sídney, la escritora Gerii Pleitez afila los sentidos y la pluma para plasmar en su libro “El domingo, ella creó a dios” de los temas que “la gente no quiere hablar” en Australia, como la existencia de las clases sociales o la violencia sistémica contra las mujeres, especialmente “de color”, según dijo a SBS Spanish.
Such a pleasure spending a rainy weekend afternoon chatting to Deborah from @browngirlpod. Not just because she is a masterful interviewer, but also due to the fact that I am such a fangirl of her brilliant podcast! She is creating such a beautiful space for women of colour to tell their story and expand the singular narrative.
Gerii sat down with the wonderful Beth AQ on her show The Glasshouse at Triple R to talk diversity in publishing, the lack of women of colour in Australian publishing, the current movement pushing the narratives of POC & WOC to the forefront and KS’s next project ‘Bleed Baby, Bleed’.
Founder Gerii Pleitez appeared on 3CR Tuesday Breakfast this morning to talk lack of representation in the local literary scene, her debut book and next projects for Kara Sevda Press. Click link below to hear the whole interview with the wonderful George & Anya (Interview starts at 50 minutes).
Kara Sevda founder Gerii Pleitez appeared on 2SER’s Final Draft program to talk with Andrew Pople about releasing her first book, the ethos behind her independent press and why representation matters.
