Barrio Writers is a youth writers’ workshop that empowers teens through creative writing, higher education prep, and cultural arts. This FREE week long writing workshop will be offered at The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center and taught by Gerard Robledo, MFA (University of Texas at El Paso) and Macondo fellow. The workshop will provide youth ages 14-19 with tools to improve their skills in reading, grammar, creative writing and freedom of expression. Each writing workshop is designed to empower the teenage community while preparing students for critical exploration of literatures through personal and social histories.
