In this drop-in, participants will read the work of writers like Julia de Burgos and Cristina Henríquez, exploring what gives these works their power, then writing under their influence. From mind-bending imagery and wordplay, to expanding our very understanding of what it means to be human, these authors have much to offer writers of fiction and poetry! Join us as we explore all the different voices Latinx literature has to offer! This class is open to writers of all levels of experience.

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
