About this event

Join Latino Outdoors, Peninsula Open Space Trust, and Elizabeth Jiménez Montelongo for a special poetry-writing event!

“Migraciones Across Borders” is an opportunity for writers of all levels to gather as a community and write poetry together. We will reflect on wildlife, migrations, and borders. Writing prompts and sample verses will be provided for inspiration. Participants will be invited to read poetry written during the event.

Please note: This event will be led in English with prompts provided in both English and Spanish. Multi-lingual expression is welcome. The workshop will not be recorded nor streamed, and we are limiting capacity in order to provide a safe space and welcoming environment.

The perspectives in this event are intended to be centered around Latinx experiences, and we are also welcoming those of other cultural backgrounds and identities to participate and reflect on the themes presented.

This event is done in collaboration with Latino Outdoors, POST, and Elizabeth Jiménez Montelongo (Creative Ambassador of the San José Office of Cultural Affairs).
