Jamie Legaspi is a Filipino-American writer, poet and artist from San Francisco Bay Area, USA.
Her work not only captures the the diaspora Filipino experience but also strives to decolonize it.
Her novel in progress The Crocodile God is an urban fantasy that brings pre-colonial Filipino knowledge into the present day. Her other works include Moonflowers, Elegies to the Anito, and Takutsubo: The Story of A Superhero.
Legaspi's work is both powerful and moving, and a much needed addition to Pinoy literature.
