En esta clase dinámica y divertida los estudiantes aprenderán a escribir e ilustrar una historia de suspenso inspirada en autores y artistas latinoamericanos. Las sesiones serán impartidas en español por dos artistas locales mexicanas: María de Lourdes Victoria, autora galardonada y Adriana Morales, reconocida artista visual. La serie de talleres alentará a los estudiantes a aprender sobre diferentes escritores y artistas latinoamericanos, y a escribir sus propias historias inspiradas en dichos artistas. La clase culminará con una presentación del trabajo de los estudiantes a través de Seattle Escribe, una organización sin fines de lucro que promueve la literatura en español de los escritores que radican en Estados Unidos.
