Conchas y Café is a DSTL Arts creative writing program for adults, ages 30+, which we currently provide in partnership with the Los Angeles County Library–East Los Angeles Branch, and the Los Angele Public Library–Junipero Serra Branch. This workshop series produces a quarterly zine by the same name, exclusively featuring artwork and creative writing produced by our program participants. The goal of Conchas y Café is to bring together our community under the arts, building skills and arts-literacy, so that more adults may appreciate the cultural and economic value the arts bring to our lives.
The Conchas y Café workshop series spans 10 weeks, and is an ongoing program being offered every quarter. Our program participants write to a new theme for their zine every quarter, and celebrate its release with a public reading. For any questions regarding Conchas y Café, and when our enrollment opens again, feel free to contact us directly by email at info@DSTLArts.org.
