About the Program

This 3-night/4-day, in-community retreat is the space where you can ignite your creativity and forge connections with a diverse and supportive community of fellow storytellers in the Latine Diaspora. This lightly structured retreat offers you the time and space to write, illustrator, and/or wander. We encourage you to bring multiple projects to this retreat that celebrates community, and the many ways to amplify and support Latinx voices.

How It’s Structured

This is a lightly scheduled program with optional/informal group activities (like fireside chats, dancing, and publishing Q & A). There will be an abundance of writing, illustrating, and retreat time; please bring your stories.

(Additional hosts to be announced soon.)
