A través de una serie de lecturas y ejercicios, las y los participantes iniciarán el primer borrador de una historia que podrá ser enviado a la instructora para recibir comentarios. Esta clase se impartirá en español, pero los ejercicios de escritura se pueden completar en español, inglés o spanglish.
