Alhambra Source presents Immigrant Stories Writing Workshop (2 dates)



San Gabriel Mission Playhouse

320 S. Mission Drive, San Gabriel, CA
San Gabriel , CA 91776 United States

Our Writing Workshop will focus on tracing immigrant narratives through the personal essay format, potentially accompanied by photos and images. Learn how to depict your own immigrant or origin story through writing and pictures with Tammy Delatorre, an experienced personal essay writer and teacher. Bring a notebook and pen OR laptop for writing exercises. And if you have photos / images to accompany your piece, bring those as well (not required).

Finished essays + photos could be displayed on poster boards as part of our APAFEST lobby exhibit and potentially run on Alhambra Source’s website! The instructor will also review the importance of immigrant narratives — and how to pursue publication beyond the workshop. You can attend both sessions, as kind of a part 1 and 2, but if you can only attend one, you’ll still have enough information to get started on a draft.

Workshop Locations –
May 10th, 20186:30 PM – 8:00 PM: San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, Main Lobby
May 17th, 2018 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM: San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, Glass Room Gallery


This is a FREE EVENT. All identities welcome!
