FUENTECO FACILITATES CREATIVITY THROUGH GENERATIVE RETREATS, EVENTS, AND PROJECTS FOR WRITERS AND OTHER ARTISTS
To nurture creativity and community, we offer
A program of generative retreats, including our day-long flagship retreat, Write Wild
FuenteCo Write-ats, our ever-moving impromptu coffee shop get-togethers for stray writers
Our Youth Studio, where young writers and artists will self-reflect and let their imagination roam free
A variety of readings, projects, and other events
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.
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.
Reading & Open Mic: Featured readings by Franciszka Voeltz and Jennifer Morales following Plant The Seed: A Generative Workshop. Presented in conjunction with Failure to Identify, a series that creates spaces for innovative, interdisciplinary & risk-taking writers & artists to perform in Houston. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Co-led by Franciszka Voeltz and Jennifer Morales, "Plant the Seed" is a workshop designed to break writers through barriers that keep them from creating the work they are meant to write.
This Valentine's Eve, join us for a different kind of Valentine's reading--one that doesn't focus on the happily-ever-afters but that instead lingers on all that is less than perfect love. We'll feature three special guest readers, Chelsey Clammer, Jasminne Mendez, and Adrienne Perry, and will then open the stage to any and all Houston writers and poets for an open mic.
