(null)

 

Join us on January 29th as we celebrate the launch of an online magazine by Dominican Writers Association, a platform created to foster and support Dominican writers worldwide. the online magazine.

Meet and greet Dan-el Padilla Peralta, author of Undocumented: A Dominican boys odyssey from a homeless shelter to Ivy League. In addition network with some of the writers who contributed to the first issue.

The Dominican Writers Association provides content that not only promotes the works of Dominican writers, but also the tools necessary for their development, while at the same time encouraging dialogue and a network for inspiration within the community. We seek to erase the chains that have restrained the talent of Dominican writers in and outside of the country.

Our mission is to publish writers of Dominican descent in the genres of poetry, fiction, art, etc., from all parts of the world no matter their education level, social status, gender, and or religious beliefs. We aim to facilitate, encourage, and promote our writing, keeping in mind that as Dominicans we experience a diversity of dilemmas and opinions.
