Class Description

Our voices are uniquely ours. To outsiders, the Latinx community can seem like a monolith – a group of people who have similar histories, belief systems, languages, religions and cultures. But we know that is absolutely not accurate. The diversity of our cultures, histories and experiences are what defines us. Join us for a 3-hour craft intensive for Latinx writers and storytellers focused on capturing and preserving the diversity of voices within our communities. We will begin our session in discussion, cultivating a strong workshop community, then move into warm-up activities that provide space to tap into personal memories, remember stories from our elders or identify little shared narratives about our specific communities. We will read excerpts from Latinx writers such as Elizabeth Acevedo, Gabe Cole Novoa, Junot Diaz, Isabel Allende and others, and discuss the specifics of how each author used voice and their particular lenses to tell stories. We will then culminate in a series of writing activities designed to help you tap into your own stories elevating your unique voice.


This class will take place in-person at our Center for Creative Writing in Boston's Seaport neighborhood.
