LA CIUDAD EN MI LENGUA Taller de escritura en español

Thursday, February 9, 2023 - 6:30pm
via ZOOM
New York, NY 10032


We present two cycles of free Creative Writing workshops in Spanish organized by Poets and Writers organization, funded by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and facilitated by teacher and writer Marianela Fernández. The idea is to explore different cities (real and imaginary) from several perspectives: the habitants, some hidden corners, the landscapes, what moves, what is static, the smells, the noises, what can be seen and what can be imagined. The workshops will explore a variety of texts from Latin American writers such as Rita Indiana (República Dominicana), Silvina López Medín (Argentina), Pablo Neruda (Chile) and Irene Gruss (Argentina) among others. The writing exercises and prompts will emerge from the reading of those authors and some city observations. These will also include two photography workshops.

Grupo 1: Jueves 6:30 PM - Comienza el 9 de febrero
Grupo 2: Martes 6:30 PM - Comienza el 7 de marzo
Duración: 9 encuentros


Coordinadora: Marianela Fernández

By the end of the two cycles we are going to publish the written production of the participants as well as some of the photos that result from the photography workshops.
