      PAWA (Philippine American Writers and Artists) & Achiote Press Presents:
      Community & Academic Writing Programs:
      A Panel for Emerging Writers

      When: 12/06/2009, 2 pm
      Where: San Francisco Public Library, Latino Room B (lower level), 100 Larkin at Grove
      Free and Open to the public, refreshments will be provided

      The California Bay Area houses a diverse array of writing programs, both community-based and academic. For this event, an exciting panel of writers will provide information to emerging writers of color who are thinking of applying to various writing programs and need some guidance. We believe it’s so valuable for writers of color who have gone through community based writing programs and MFA (Masters of Fine Arts) programs to share their knowledge and experiences with others. A question and answer session will follow.

      Some questions that will be discussed: Why did you decide to attend a community based writing workshop and/or an MFA program? How did you decide on where to apply? Why did you attend the program you attended? What was the structure of your program? What were the positive and negative aspects of your program?

      Panelists include:
      Rashaan Alexis Meneses (St Mary’s, Fiction MFA)
      Claire Light (San Francisco State University, Fiction MFA)
      Vickie Vertiz (VONA, KSW IWL)
      Craig Santos Perez (University of San Francisco, Poetry MFA)
      Oscar Bermeo (VONA, KSW IWL, louderArts)
      Vanessa Huang (VONA, KSW, Kundiman)
