Join the Intercultural Community Center, Academic Commons and Special Collections & Archives as we celebrate Latinx Heritage Month as part of our ‘Belonging in the Academic Commons’ Series.
In this lecture and workshop, Brooklyn-based author John Paul Brammer will talk about how he launched his advice column ¡Hola Papi! with Grindr and eventually turned it into a book with Simon & Schuster. More specifically, he'll talk about how he incorporates his real experiences as a gay Latino into his writing while negotiating those experiences with industry appetites. Attendees of this workshop will also have the opportunity to write an essay, a short story, a humor piece, or even a poem that centers a lived experience they have had.
