Poetry Reading: Poetry from then and now” (follows Welcome Reception)
Because San Antonio was such a wellspring of literary activity in the movimiento, we feel that we should remember the poets who participated in the readings and publications 40 years ago. Caracol, Tejidos, and chapbooks published by M&A Editions owned by Angela de Hoyos and Moises Sandoval, lay the ground for many important literary production. Some of the poets who first published in these venues went on to publish books and to become active in the literary scene nationally. This is an evening of poetry reading by poets who were active in the 1960, 70s and 80's poetry scene in Texas. Among those invited to participate are: ( * indicates confirmed):

Description: Chican@ writers have traditionally written about their lives and the social conditions of being a Chicana or Chicano in the United States. After attending the conference and participating in the various activities including panels, tours, and listening to plenary speakers and session participants, attendees to NACCS 2013 may want to reflect and take the time to write about their own experiences. Participants write two pieces from a personal perspective and share the pieces with the group. This workshop invites participants to engage in the issues of our times to write flash non-fiction pieces that can be later worked into publishable pieces.
The workshop will be led by Dr. Norma E. Cantú, Professor of Latin@ Studies, University of Missouri, Kansas City and Dr. Elsa C. Ruiz, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at UTSA. Their varied background in English and Mathematics, respectively, allows them to co-present the workshop using different vantage points. They previously presented a shortened version of this workshop at NACCS in Pasadena.
