“The experience of La Voz was an enlightening time for me. It was my first time EVER using my voice in that way to share something that I believed in so strongly, and having people react to it was an incredible feeling. It definitely showed me a new world I never knew about and I will never be able to stress how meaningful of an experience this was for me.” —Victoria Falcon on La Voz de San Antonio, 2014 La Voz 14-19 age group winner

unnamedGemini Ink’s 2014 Autograph Series brought novelist Robert Boswell and David Tomas Martinez, a poet and Canto Mundo Fellow to San Antonio.  Upon hearing these great writers, my students understood that literature is not merely printed on a page; it is alive and sentient. Words can change a life and Gemini Ink’s work proves this, again and again. –Patricia Portales, Author and San Antonio College Professor
