Meet Ernesto Tinajero, our arts and poetry contributor

Ernesto Tinajero

Because he grew up in El Paso, Texas, on the edge of Juarez, Mexico, Ernesto Tinajero understands what it means to live on the border.

Art, he says, comes from the border of what has come before and what is coming next. Tinajero uses his experience studying poetry and theology, to write about the intersecting borders of art, poetry and religion.

He studied at Fuller Theological Seminary, where he was the associate editor of Offerings literary magazine and also served as associate poetry editor for Rio Grande Review. He has blogged for the Christian Social Justice Site Sojourners, currently a Christian Century Blogger network, and has blogged for Salon.com.
