Taeyin ChoGlueck, Luis Lopez-Maldonado, & Tania Sarfraz will help you discover that writing is an art and an art and beyond.
Taeyin ChoGlueck is a third culture kid birthed by North America and South Korea. She is the co-founder of Stage for Change, a non-profit group that puts unheard voices that question identity on the stage. Taeyin’s play (through ND Theater NOW), The Pink Pope, offers a female God with a problem: up in Heaven, Purgatory is full, thanks to misogynistic men who reject Her, and on earth, women have left the Church, urging the Vatican - and men - to join them in building a new church.
Luis Lopez-Maldonado is a Xican@ poeta choreographer and educator. He earned a BA from the University of California Riverside, majoring in creative writing and dance. His poetry has been seen in The American Poetry Review, Cloudbank, and Spillway, among many others. He earned an MA in Dance from Florida State University. He is a poetry editorial assistant for the Notre Dame Review, and founder of the men's writing workshop in the St. Joseph County Juvenile Justice Center; he is a co-founder and editor at The Brillantina Project.
Tania Sarfraz received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from Brown University in 2014. She won the Weston Senior Prize for her short fiction collection, Betrayal & Other Stories. She is a writer of short prose that meanders, then finds its way, or remains lost. She grew up in Lahore, Pakistan, where she sometimes eats mangoes.
