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:
- The Creative Writing Workshop, facilitated by Dr. Tiffany Ana Lopez, coeditor of creative writing, and
- 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.
