The workshop she's teaching sounds interesting (don't look for this on the website; it hasn't yet been updated): "Blending and Blurring Genres"
Fiction writer Sandra Cisneros, documentary filmmaker Lourdes Portillo, and ethnographer Ruth Behar come together to offer a workshop on blended and blurred genres. We welcome writing that creatively meshes fiction and non-fiction, that uses history and documentary to tell stories, and that engages individual voices, families, and communities in a socially conscious way. This workshop is for experienced writers who will present their work in English. Comments will be provided in class. Please bring a strategic segment of a work in progress (10 pages) on which you want feedback.
It sounds fascinating. Contrary to the dates listed on the website, the workshop is actually scheduled for January 2-11. I doubt that I'll sign up for the workshop, but I'm tempted to go down to Mexico anyway . . . .
