Wind, Flag, Mind Moves – Global Poetry Reading

con Daniel Chacón

May 7, 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: Daniel Chacón, Author & Literature Professor and UTEP Student Writers

DATE: May 7, 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 Daniel Chacón and UTEP Student Writers. 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.
