Poetry. Villanueva's poems fuse the personal and the political, anchoring the abstract in the sensual world and revealing a belief in the power of language to connect us to the world, to each other, and to ourselves.

Villanueva won the Latino Literature Prize in 1994 for her book PLANET, and has written four other volumes of poetry, a collection of short stories, and two prize-winning novels.
