$150

Writing is like making a fluffy tortilla, if you aren’t completely present with the process of kneading the masa, the tortilla won’t rise. Join author Anel Flores, and Erika Casasola, Mexican curandera, to enter on a path to more authentic and fulfilling writing practice. More than flipping scene by scene through the writer’s life, their memories, their research, and countless rough drafts, the writing process can also involve exploring memories of childhood, youth, adulthood, or ancestral blood memory. In this workshop, we’ll open up the creative process using the traditional curanderismo (healing) practice of conversation, the “platica.” You’ll come away with a tool bag of ideas for future writing and some suggestions for sharing and submitting your work for publication.
