Join us for a series of platicas and workshops that explore the diversity of our Latina writing community in 2018. Topics include film and theatre, publishing, children & young adult literature, academia, writing as parent/caretaker, space making, politics & journalism, on Los Angeles, submission strategies, and fellowships & residencies. All panels and workshops are designed to encourage discussion long past the closing of the conference. Each platica and workshop will be hosted by guest speakers, to be announced soon!

Numerous vendors and authors will be presenting their publications and work throughout the day. You are encouraged to bring your books or zines and feel free to sell them at our shop in the plaza. You may also share the event with your friends and colleagues, and those inspiring writers in your familia, just please let us know that you are coming! Bring your children - care for children ages 5 and over, with lots of activities, will be provided free of charge!
