Inlandia’s Tesoros de Cuentos bilingual creative writing workshop is back! This fall, the “Viva Abuelita Power” theme will give voice to the wisdom, knowledge, and power of the Grandmother. Through writing exercises, participants will unravel from their hearts and memories personal experiences and/or stories of the abuelitas in their lives — chronicling a treasure trove of sweet and savory recollections.

Tesoros Motto: Las palabras vuelan; los escritos quedan — Words fly; writings endure.
