Seeing everyone's faces was wonderful. Hearing the poetry that was read reminded me how important it is to hear a variety of voices as a writer. I participated in Maya's workshop. I have some lists of topics and more to inform my writing after completing the exercises.
I found Javier Huerta's workshop very helpful and informative. What was presented took me forward with checking out other poets, and more.
The morning opening ceremony and introduction was a great way to begin on a note of spiritual creativity. The breakout I participated in was superb in all ways. I even applied for admission to Cabrillo so I could be one of Adela's students this fall semester.
The conference was very helpful especially the workshop I attended with Javier O. Huerta. The conference organization was perfect. I like to thank the organizers for all the work they did on every one of its aspects but especially on the Zoom connection.
I was inspired by the presence of so many - our need to be together and write.
It was both inspiring and motivational. And totally germane to our current world.
The Círculo summer conference is our major annual event. Like last year, the conference takes place online using Zoom. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 14th, from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm. It'll be a full day of getting to know each other, workshops, and more, concluding with an open mic for all participants. Check back for the schedule and to sign-up in July.
CALL FOR WORKSHOP LEADERS
Each year, our conference offers three or more workshops for participants, and for 2021, we invite proposals on the conference theme, "Poetry and Prose Time Machine." How can we time travel using the written word?
We welcome proposals in any literary genre: poetry, prose, nonfiction, etc., or any combination thereof. Our theme, "Poetry and Prose Time Machine" is meant in a spirit of hope, imaginative fun, and opens the many ways we approach creative writing. Send us something that stimulates the senses and builds community. We hope that workshops will address the Círculo mission of encouraging diverse voices in the creation of multilingual multicultural poetry and prose. In addition, workshops are open to all writers from those just starting their writing journey to published authors.
Propose a 60-minute session.
Deadline: Saturday, June 19th.
Proposal acceptance notification: late June.
Email email@example.com for questions and/or further information.
A year-long Círculo membership is offered to all workshop leaders.
Propose your dream workshop by June 19th. Poetry, prose, genre-specific, all works. We are looking for proposals that encourage diverse voices in the creation of multilingual multicultural poetry and prose. What is your dream workshop and how can you get that going to generate creative writing that rocks our multicultural world? We'll get back to you by the end of June.
