What are the words that make you think of home? What are the names of people and places from your history? In this writing workshop, share and explore language unique to your communities. Xochitl-Julisa Bermejo is the author of Posada: Offerings of Witness and Refuge, a Steinbeck fellow, a Poets & Writers California Writers Exchange winner, and a cofounder of Women Who Submit.

Free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, combine writing with creative activities for groups of up to 20 students.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.
