Wind, Flag, Mind Moves – Global Reading

con Allison Adelle Hedge Coke

January 28, 2021

Wind, Flag, Mind Moves – a Binational Contemplative Writers Series.

Mindfulness and creativity in the time of quarantine has proven to be challenging. But now more than ever, as we find ourselves unable to go outward, we are presented with the opportunity to turn inward. The Wind, Flag, Mind Moves series is an offering of exchanges designed to inspire writers along the creative path.

Join us for this unique virtual line-up of readings, workshops and discussions, where we engage with notable authors and meditation practitioners as we explore the relationship of contemplative practices, social action, and the written word.

Featured Guest: Allison Adelle Hedge Coke, Poet & Author, Distinguished Professor of Creative Writing at University of California, Riverside

DATE: January 28, 2021
TIME: 5:00 pm Pacific/ 6:00 pm Mountain / 7:00 pm Central / 8:00 pm Eastern / 9:00 pm Atlantic 

This is a one hour event that will feature selected readings by Allison Adelle Hedge Coke. The program will be moderated by Tim Z. Hernandez, Author and Professor from University of Texas El Paso.

This writers series is open to everyone; no prerequisites. This series is offered in English; however, Spanish interpretation will be made available for participants whose first language is Spanish. Please register early and let us know if that is true for you.

Writers Series hosted by Mayela Padilla and Tim Z. Hernandez, Sponsored by Casa Werma and the University of Texas El Paso Department of Creative Writing.
