"I never thought my poetry would circulate, or be recognized, at a national level," Perez, who received a 2016 fellowship, told NBC News. "I hope this signals a turn of attention towards Pacific Islander poetry by American readers and literary organizations. This is especially important now, with the threats of militarism, colonialism, capitalism, and environmental injustice impacting the Pacific region."
