National Latinx Writers Gathering: A Virtual Event for Latinx Writers in All Genres

October 16October 18

Friday-Sunday, October 16-18, 2020
www.uslatinxlit.org

The first National Latinx Writers Gathering, “Sembrando y Soñando,” will take place October 16-18, 2020. It is open to any Latinx writer working in any genre. As a result of the new coronavirus, all weekend events will be virtual.

The first year of this unprecedented convening of Latinx writers emphasizes community-building, connection, and experiential collaboration–determined by a national survey of Latinx writers who expressed what they want from a first conference of this kind. The first event will also determine the shape and content of annual Latinx convenings in the future–an undertaking organizers want to co-create together.

We are grateful to a coalition of organizations and individuals who have made this first convening possible: the National Hispanic Cultural Center, Letras Latinas/Institute for Latino/a Studies, Latinx Writers Caucus, City of Albuquerque, Artful Life, the Albuquerque Poet Laureate Program, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Planning Committee Members:  Francisco Aragon, Rebeca Alderete Baca, Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhran, Sutherland Jaramillo, Demetria Martínez, Valerie Martínez, Elise McHugh, Cassandra Osterloh, Genaro Padilla, Rubén Quesada, Sara Rivera, and Shelle Sánchez.
