Macondo Writers Workshop & Residency - San Antonio

Years ago Sandra Cisneros, now a fixture among Texas and national writers and required on some schools summer reading lists, started helping others write better at her kitchen table at a house on Mango Street.
Today, the project is full grown, as a place for poets, novelists, journalists, performance artists and creative writers of all genres whose work is socially engaged and some writers are short-term residents
Other mature writers close to Macondo include Denise Chavez, John Phillip Santos, Luis Rodriguez, Dorothy Allison, Joy Harjo and Carmen Tafolla.
