Join the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute at Tulane University in welcoming Cuban-American playwright Christina Quintana, who will be hosting a workshop on Latinx literature and creative writing on Thursday, March 14 at 4:00 PM in the Greenleaf Conference Room (100A Jones Hall).

In the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to generate new material through writing prompts and exercises, inspired by work from emerging literary voices in the Latinx community which we will read and respond to as a group. The workshop will be followed by the opportunity to discuss and ask questions about the new play development process with playwright, Christina Quintana.
