Some of us can’t shake the feeling we should be writing things down. Let’s make stories together. For six weeks we’ll read and write creatively in a bilingual space that welcomes all writers: in English for those who prefer it, español para los que lo prefieren, and Spanglish para todos in between. We’ll read and discuss fiction, essays, and memoir with an emphasis on Latin American and Latino writers. Weekly writing exercises, language games, and paired discussions will offer us richer ways to use language and storytelling. Finally, we’ll share our fiction and narrative nonfiction with each other to get feedback. The workshop is open to writers with any level of experience (including none at all!).
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
