This eight-week workshop is designed for writers to try writing fiction or need inspiration and skills to write more. The workshop culminates with a public reading of the new works.

6 pm, Wednesdays (eight weeks between January 16 and March 6)

Do you love reading good fiction—whether historical, popular, literary or sci-fi? Have you always wanted to write stories or novels? This eight week workshop is designed for writers who want to try writing fiction or those who need inspiration (and skills) to write more.  Inspired by fiction by Latinx writers, you will write new work, develop your narrative skills and receive valuable feedback for revision from your fellow writers. The workshop culminates with a public reading of your new work at the NHCC.

Instructor:  Brenna Gomez is adjunct faculty at the University of New Mexico (UNM) where she teaches composition, creative writing, and in the freshmen learning community program. She received her MFA in fiction from UNM in 2016 and served as Editor in Chief of UNM’s national literary magazine, Blue Mesa Review. Her fiction has appeared in Prairie Schooner and is forthcoming in StoryQuarterly. Brenna was the recipient of a 2017 Hedgebrook residency and the 2015 Hispanic writer award for the UNM Summer Writers’ Conference in Santa Fe. She is also a staff reader for Recommended Reading at Electric Literature and hosts author events Bookworks in Albuquerque.
