Ezra Letra

Genre: Hiphop

Ezra Letra is a poet / film maker / hip hop artist I became aware of thru the collective The Last Ancients, a modern art movement.  Born in Queens, NY and residing in Phoenix, AZ, Ezra holds a B.A in English and Creative Writing from The University of Arizona.  His The Nobody EP is listed in Tucson Weekly as one of the Top Ten Albums of the Year.

We met for the first time in Tucson, AZ, where we both featured alongside amazing poets, including Isaac Kirkman, the first feature of Ezra’s Nobody Documentary series.

His first poetry collection, When La Migra Stopped Coming, was published by Nostrovia! Poetry in 2014 as a free Internet Chapbook.

Jeremiah Walton is wary of bios, but there's the current sign they're flying: “Jeremiah Walton is founder of Nostrovia! Press & traveling bookstore Books & Shovels. They’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival, Oakland Beast Crawl, San Francisco Lit Crawl, Death Rattle, the Kansas City Poetry Throwdown, Cleveland’s Guide to Kulchur: Snoetry, among other lit fests, street corners, & living rooms across the country. They loath-themselves, & are struggling to find a healthy extension of the poem that incorporates publishing. Consistently confused, & trying to make space for compassion for the parts of myself I hate.” That feels like tattooing "love me" across my neck, but hopefully you get to know me thru my poems, not the accolades that are nothing more than memories to let go of.
