Austin and Pflugerville Workshops
*For Summer, 2021, all Barrio Writers Austin and Pflugerville workshops will remain virtual. As we take new information and health/safety practices into account from the city and State of Texas, we will make decisions about future virtual and in-person programming. If you want updates for Fall 2021 events, follow us on Facebook or Instagram: @barriowriters.*

These college-level creative writing programs founded by Sarah Rafael Garcia are led by Program Co-Directors Leticia Urieta and Marilyse Figueroa along with UT students and other local community educators/artists which will provide youth with an opportunity to learn different forms of writing (poetry, spoken word, hip-hop, short stories, essay), (virtual) author's visits and field trips.
