As of 2013, approximately 5 million Puerto Ricans reside in the mainland U.S. and these 16 non-binary and women writers are adding new narratives to the history of Puerto Rican writing.
Their fiction, essays, and poetry focuses on racism, inequality, womanhood, African-based religions, and much more. These are the writers to watch to see how they change the topography of Puerto Rican literature.
