Creative Writing Workshop: led by Ana-Maurine Lara

An assistant professor in the UO Department of Anthropology, Ana-Maurine Lara is also a national award-winning fiction author and poet. She was awarded the Oregon Arts Commission’s 2015 honorary Joan Shipley Award, and is also a recipient of PEN/Northwest, the Barbara Deming Award, and the National Latino/Chicano Literary Contest Third Prize. Her novel Erzulie’s Skirt (RedBone Press 2006) was a Lambda Literary Finalist. She draws from her experiences as a Dominican-American writer of Native, African, and Jewish ancestry to produce literary works and performances that blur the boundaries of artistic genres and cultural traditions.
