Local Sacramento writer Raquel Ruiz has started up Sacramento's first Spanish writing group. It is based on the Amherst Writers & Artist method (AWA).
The writer's group is specially for cancer survivors, family members and/or friends of cancer patients, but Ruiz says all aspiring writers are welcome to join her FREE group. The participants don't need to have any writing experience, only the desire to write in Spanish.
The writing group will begin meeting on March 3 at the UC Davis Medical Center located at 4800 2nd Avenue, Suite 2200.
"The writing group is free of cost. I'm donating my time and UC Davis is donating their Cancer Center facility," said Ruiz.
