Acentos Writers Workshops are back

The Acentos Writers workshop season start up again Sept. 6th with Marie-Elizabeth Mali.
These classes are free and open to the public.

Starting Sept. 6th, Acentos features Marie-Elizabeth Mali. She was born and raised in New York City, with frequent trips to Venezuela and Sweden where most of her family lives. Before receiving her MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, she practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is a co-curator for louderARTS: the Reading Series. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Calyx, MiPOesias, Pebble Lake Review, and RATTLE, among others.

The Acentos Writers Workshop was established with the purpose of nurturing the newer voices in the poetry community. With writers from across several genres donating their time, the workshop encourages newer writers to hone their craft, establish and create community, and perform their work in front of growing audiences.

The Acentos Writers Workshop offers opportunities for growing writers through contact with professional writers, poets, mentors, and teachers. The workshop accepts writers of all backgrounds and skill level to foster growth and maximize their full potential and grow as writers.

As part of the Acentos Foundation and the louderARTS project, the workshops continue to serve a multitude of generations, ethnicities and backgrounds.

Due to the holiday weekend, hostos will not have classes. Therefore, neither will we. The Acentos Writers workshop will start Sept 13th.

I look forward to seeing you all there. I will send out the next blurb next week. -- Fish Vargas
