Dec 14: Join Tata Diego for a ride on the Almanac Train!

A Last-Chance Writing Workshop for 2013 Almanac Submissions


Diego Vázquez at a Community Editors meeting

Come and hear some great advice and get hands-on help with finalizing your poetry, fiction, and nonfiction writing for publication in the 2013 edition of the Saint Paul Almanac.

Our deadline for submissions for the 2013 Almanac is December 15th, but if you come to our workshop, we’ll give you another two weeks to mop your vowels, iron your nouns, and polish your prepositions—before submitting your finished work to the Almanac by December 31st.

The “conductor” of our “Almanac Train” (chuckle) is Diego Vázquez, who has been a visiting Writer in the Schools for many years. His novels include Growing Through the Ugly and Border Town with the UFO Sky (forthcoming).

Vázquez is regarded as the founder of Poetry Slam in Minnesota. As a community editor for the Saint Paul Almanac, Vázquez is constantly searching for new authors, young and old, to publish.

In 2008 he was selected as a Saint Paul Everyday Sidewalks poet. Vázquez is featured on the acclaimed Equilibrium/Loft CD, Nation of Immigrants.
