Creative Writing Program

Center for Latin American Arts!

The Center for Latin American Arts advances scholarship, performances, and the exhibition of arts in the popular, folk, and academic traditions from the United States and Spanish and Portuguese speaking worlds.

UTRGV Creative Writing faculty José Rodriguez and  Emmy Perez teamed up with the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa led by Christopher Merrill and Wendy Walters to travel to Ecuador and Colombia in 2018.

There, this group hosted workshops and broadcasted readings with other writers, local journalists, and students. The Center for Latin American Arts will support future projects for writers and students to collaborate and produce creative literature.
