Cuentos contains first drafts of short fiction, poetry, and unfinished improvisational works. With one exception, all written material in Cuentos is copyright Teresa Ybarra Phillips and may be used only by permission.
Teresa Ybarra Phillips is from New Mexico, California or Washington, depending on when you ask. She has an English degree from the University of Washington, and lived in Seattle for many years. Now living in Corrales, New Mexico, she is married, raises chickens, sings often and works overmuch as a rehab therapist. She write short fiction and poetry in the precious moments alloted to chicken farmers and therapists.
Teresa has facilitated improvisational writing groups for many years. You may see members of her current group performing at local venues throughout the Albuquerque area. These meet weekly in Corrales – contact Teresa for more information.
Prior to buying the farm (she bought the farm), Teresa wrote for and performed regularly with the long-defunct aLanDance productions, with the Buen Viaje Dancers of N4th Arts Centers, and briefly with Kwee-na-meh, a Native American storytelling troupe.
Teresa’s work has appeared in Sin Fronteras and the Alibi; recent work and works in progress may be seen read at her late-night blog, Cuentos, Much of her work has been produced and performed rather than published. This status is likely to change in the near future. Currently, she is prepping for her second annual Tarot Marathon at the Georgetown Haunted History Tour in Seattle (October 2011), and girding her loins for a fresh round of submissions.
