Call for Participants: Summer Writing Workshops

Chicana/Latina Studies: The Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social calls for participation in the Writing Workshops at the 2007 MALCS Summer Institute at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul Campus, August 2-4.

The Writing Workshops are one of the Journal’s formal methods of creating a feminist editorial process. Following the spirit and mission of MALCS, the coeditors offer the workshop in order to institutionalize mentorship. Participants will come away from a workshop with clear recommendations for meeting internal criteria of Chicana/Latina Studies, specific direction about revision, and first-hand knowledge about our feminist editorial production process.

We encourage applications from writers at all professional levels. Two Writing Workshops will be offered this summer:

  1. The Creative Writing Workshop, facilitated by Dr. Tiffany Ana Lopez, coeditor of creative writing, and
  2. Essay (or scholarly article) Writing Workshop, facilitator TBA. Dr. Karen Mary Davalos will attend the workshop to provide information about the feminist editorial production process.

Each workshop has space for 8 participants, who must register for the Summer Institute and renew membership for 2007-2008.

With verification of membership and registration, applicants are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
