2020 New Mexico Writers Dinner
Time & Location
About the Event
The New Mexico Writers annual dinner, launched in 2017, is dedicated to nurturing new writers throughout the Land of Enchantment, a state steeped in vibrant literary traditions. Its mission is to encourage voices that reflect the true diversity of our state. Proceeds from the dinner are used to fund grants for aspiring New Mexico writers. Recipients may use the grants to support their work as needed, including tuition for a writing-related program or mentor-ship, travel, research costs, special equipment, or time to work on a project without a day job.
The 2020 New Mexico Writers Dinner keynote Speaker is Levi Romero. Romero’s work has been described by Rudolfo Anaya as, “From the loco to the sublime . . . a blessing on our heads.”
