Next month's meeting of the Latino Authors & Writers Society will be held a little early (date-wise), it will take place July 20th. The guest speaker will be our very own Suzanne who will discuss a writing process she teaches to both prose and poetry writers (it's a way to generate more material). And don't forget that the guest speaker for September will be literary agent Kathleen Ortiz. Also, keep an eye peeled for news about the 2012 writers' conference!

New writing gigs...

Hey, I almost forget to tell you...

I'm also currently writing articles about Latino literature for Salsa magazine on Facebook, and I'm also writing fish article (yes, fish articles!) for the Brooklyn Aquarium Society's newsletter.

2012 Latino Authors & Writers Conference

Ho, Ho, Ho. I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! As for me, my dreams are filled with images of sugar plums and my 2012 Latino Authors & Writers Conference! This year's conference was a blast and now I'm thinking about the fun we'll all have next year! I'm thinking about the guest speakers, the sponsors, supporters and partners, and I'm thinking about the great Salsa band that will play at the end of the conference! Wow, I love it! Hope to see you there!

If you'd like to attend the opera Iolanthe and my daughter who is performing in the opera, you can buy a ticket at . There will be 4 shows in all: May 26 & 27 and June 10 & 11. The May shows are on a Thursday and a Friday at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, PA. The June shows are on a Friday and Saturday at Longwood Gardens (if you don't have a car, or live far from this area, I don't suggest trying to make the Longwood Garden shows). Even if you can't make it, you can still support the Savoy Company by making donations (which are tax-deductible) to the company.
