Emma Beltran

Emma Beltran was a founding member of the first community radio station in Mexico’s history during the student strike at the National Autonomous University of Mexico in 1999. This work caused her to be subject to political charges, kidnapping and torture, by the Mexican National Army. Exiled in Canada since May 2002, Beltran’s poetry has been published in various literary journals and anthologies. Beltran acted as lead writer for The TAXI Project, a collective play about home and exile written in collaboration with Martha Kuwee Kumsa, Sheng Xue and Goran Simic. She is a member of PEN Canada’s Writers in Exile Network.
