UNM’s Writers in the Community course is offering free writing workshops that will focus on poetry, short story writing, and fun on July 9 and July 16 at Bernalillo County’s Computer Clubhouse (1221 Arenal SW), from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
The University New Mexico’s Chicano Studies Program, via their course "Writers in the Community", is partnering with Bernalillo County to offer two nights of free writing workshops.
Part-time professor Carlos Contreras, under the guidance of Centennial Poet, Levi Romero, sought out the partnership of Bernalillo County’s Parks and Recreation Department in order to serve our community's youth.
Contreras and Romero are part of UNM Chicano Studies’ efforts to create “community based learning” courses that allow for UNM students to give back, while building their educational base, and preparing themselves for a future in the professional working world.
Community-based learning initiatives are garnering the interest of students from all over the literary and educational spectrum; and to date, offerings of the Writers in the Community workshops have boasted class rosters with: Spanish, business, English, and creative writing students.
For more information or to RSVP, please call (505) 554-0186 (leave message).
