This year’s Círculo de poetas and Writers conference includes two break-out sessions where participants can generate poetry and prose. Each workshop is open to all writers, from those just starting their writing journey to published authors.

For each break-out session, choose one workshop:

Break-out Session #1 (11:00 to 12:00)
Workshop A: "The Heroine's Journey"--Lead by Nicole Henares
Workshop B: "Embracing Writer's Block & Warming Up to Your Writing Style" --Lead by Naomi Quiñonez

Break-out Session #2 (1:00 to 2:00)
Workshop A: "Black Elk's Sacred Hoop: Finding Your Circle Power" --Lead by Lara Gularte
Workshop B: "Writing as a Box of Memories" --Lead by Violeta Orozco & Masiel M. Corona

The conference will be held on Zoom. Please download the Zoom app, if you haven't done so already. We will hold a "How to Use Zoom" Q & A on Friday, August 13th at 6 pm.

We will try to accommodate as many participants in the Reading and Open Mic portion of the conference, so we must limit everyone to one poem or one paragraph of prose and a 3-minute maximum time limit. Make sure to sign-up for the open mic as part of your registration.

The conference is free and open to the public, though we do accept donations. No one will be turned away due to a lack of funds. However, we would appreciate a $25 donation or you can also become a Círculo member or continue your membership by posting the annual $50 dues.

(After completing this form, you will receive the Zoom invitation and password the week of the conference, so check your email in early August!)
