We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable — but then, so did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art, the art of words.
Ursula K. Le Guin
About the Author
Byron López Ellington is a teenage writer of young adult fiction, fantasy, poetry, essays, sci-fi, and more. He's been described as a "walking encyclopedia" due to his passion for learning and teaching about the world. Heavily involved in political discussion, he identifies as an anarchist communist and uses his writing to help spread his ideas. When he's not working on one of his million projects or doing schoolwork, he can usually be found binge-watching cartoons and video essays or procrastinating on social media.
Byron's current works in progress include his 2020 Portfolio and Knotstone, a YA fantasy adventure novel.
