Acompáñanos a una noche de lectura y micrófono abierto para celebrar la escritura creativa en español.
Just as the environments we inhabit are always transforming, so is our writing and our creative practice—which means they are worth reexamining frequently. On the hunt for inspiration, let yourself be swept up in the joy of exploring the hallways of what once was the old Harris Moving and Storage Building and what has since transformed into a lively hive of working artists.
Experimentation, collaboration, and hybridity in writing and other arts are at the center of what FuenteCo stands for. Join us for an interactive celebration featuring work across art forms by past FuenteCo participants, get a sneak peek of what we have in store for Houston's creative community in the coming year, and get to know our FuenteCo team and regulars.
WRITE WILD is a day-long creative writing retreat focused on generating new ideas and work. In four 90-minute sessions, each led by a different facilitator, you'll experiment outside your usual form, genre, and style, allowing you to peek around the corner of your usual creative process to discover what lies beyond.
Join us for an evening celebrating the voices of Houston’s writers of color! Whether poets or prose writers, playwrights or young adult authors, Houston-based writers of color have roots around the country and globe and work in every conceivable genre, style, across languages. If you identify as a writer of color, bring your fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and everything in-between to read on the Voices of Color stage!
Allegra Hyde will leads us through an immersive walking exploration of Buffalo Bayou Park that will combine generative exercises with a close study of our slow moving waterway.
