Emmy Perez, the 2020 Texas Poet Laureate, will host a writing workshop and poetry reading at Texas Woman’s University on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Perez, a professor of creative writing at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, won the 2017 National Endowment for the Arts poetry fellowship in 2017 and also co-founded the Poets Against Walls collective.

The workshop is set for 2:30 p.m. and will focus on social justice poetry, and her reading will be at 7 p.m. After, there will be a question-and-answer session, as well as a book signing.

Both the writing workshop and reading are free and open to the public in Room 301 of the Administration and Conference Tower Building.
