This Mother’s Day weekend, local poet and writer Noemi Martinez has a special free gift for all single mothers. Noemi has been writing about her experiences as a person living on these borderlands and as a single mother for many years. She is best known for her influential and popular zine, Hermana Resist. In March of 2017, Noemi was recognized at our Neta Launch Party // Reclama Awards as we paid tribute to her contributions as a storyteller in South Texas.

So for this Saturday and Sunday only, anyone who is a single mother is given this special gift of a free PDF download of Noemi’s poetry and photo book South Texas Experience: Love Letters. As a longtime fan of Noemi, this is a great gift to anyone, especially for those who love the Rio Grande Valley.

If you aren’t a single mother but are interested in Noemi’s work, please support by buying a copy, or you can donate to Noemi so she can continue her work at

Hope y’all have a great, happy Mother’s Day weekend!
