Voices of San Anto Bilingual Storytelling Workshop with Marisela Barrera

May 6, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT


You have a story to tell, and we want to help you tell it!

Join poet and storyteller Marisela Barrera for a free, two-session workshop at the San Antonio Public Library. Craft a five to seven-minute story about a significant moment in your life and present it a public performance and celebration. Whether it’s that funny anecdote you share at parties, an event that changed your life, or a family story passed down for generations, your story matters, and we want to help you bring it to life.

This workshop is for adults 18+, and no writing or performance experience is required. Native Spanish speakers and bilingual folks are highly encouraged to register.

You will leave the workshop with:

  • A fully-formed story ready for performance
  • An understanding of story elements
  • Performance strategies for effective live storytelling
  • Experience sharing a story with friends, family, and the community


Writing Sessions May 6 & 13, 1-5pm

Final Celebration May 20, 10:30am-12:30pm
