BOOM+ Toolbox: Volume One
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Last November, the Mexican Cultural Institute of Washington, DC hosted a creative writing workshop based on the work of the Latin-American Boom and other authors instructed by talented writers Luis Felipe Lomelí and Carlos José Pérez Sámano.
All participants were able to identify and reproduce those particular literary techniques and structures used by the following writers, among others: Gabriel García Márquez, Amparo Dávila, Jorge Luis Borges, Maria Luisa Bombal, Julio Cortázar, Clarice Lispector, Felisberto Hernández, Elena Garro, Juan José Arreola and Laura Esquivel.
This VOLUME ONE includes eight of the best short stories penned by Carmen Benito Vessels, Mateo Bonilla, Marta Caminero-Santangelo, Minerva Canto, Ofelia Montelongo, María José Orozco, Pilar Orozco and Willona M. Sloan.
Thanks to the success of the workshop, BOOM+ Toolbox 2 opened early this year and we will soon share the stories that result from this new literary adventure.
