7th Annual Barrio Writers Live Reading

Saturday Jul 15, 2017 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM | GWB 2.206 (Multipurpose Room), Gordon-White Building (GWB), The University of Texas at Austin

The Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) is pleased to host the 7th Annual Barrio Writers Live Reading on Saturday, July 15, 2017.

The live reading will feature youth writers who have spent a week reading, writing and creating their own works on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.

The Barrio Writers program is focused on teen-age participants and consists of free workshops and additional one-on-one tutoring throughout the academic summer break, with monthly cultural arts events during the school year. Through these workshops and events, students build their skills in reading, critical thinking, creative writing and freedom of expression through the cultural arts.

During the summer a writing workshop is held to empower the teenage community while establishing a self-sufficient educational program that will represent community pride, perseverance and endless possibilities for following generations.
