Online Writing Workshop for Latinx Teens: “The Songs That Made You”

February 6

12 pm (MST)

Online via Zoom: Register HERE
Deadline to Register, Friday, January 29, 2021

Fee: $10. Workshop Limit: 15. Financial scholarships are available.

For writers ages 15-19 anywhere in the U.S. Writers of fiction, poetry, nonfiction and drama are welcome. In this workshop, young Latinx writers will create a playlist of 10 songs that reflect an important moment and/or experience in their lives. What memory or feeling do these particular songs evoke? Why have you chosen these songs and not others? Is there a theme to your playlist (i.e. summer songs, winter songs, heartbreak, home)?

We will discuss our choices and participate in writing exercises where we describe these songs in detail and the experiences they represent. Writers will share their work in order to receive productive feedback from the other members of the workshop (including the instructor). From this feedback we will revise our writings continuously throughout the six weeks. The workshop will conclude with a virtual public reading in March 2021. All sessions as well as the public reading will take place via Zoom. Instructor: Patricia M. Perea. Perea received her B.A. (West Texas A&M) and M.A. in English (University of Texas) and her Ph.D. (University of New Mexico) in American Studies with a focus on Mexican American memoir.

This workshop will take place over six Saturdays: February 6, 13, 20, 27, March 6, 13, 2021

The workshop will conclude with a virtual public reading in March 2021. All sessions as well as the public reading will take place via Zoom.
