Join the MFA in Creative Writing program and the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for a session of supported community writing. Holding Space on the Page is a program designed to uplift, centralize, and celebrate voices across marginalized communities and cultures.
In this session, we’ll be joined by acclaimed writer Sandra Cisneros, author of "The House on Mango Street." Cisneros will be sharing passages from her novella, which tells the story of a young Latina girl discovering who and what she will become.
After hearing these creative pieces, we will invite you to reflect, discuss, and write. Writing prompts will be available to help make connections personally, professionally, and creatively, but you are also welcome to use this time to reflect and rest. No writing experience needed!
