We’re starting a blog! Rather than only sharing our thoughts, we’d like to hear yours and share them on our site. Please tell us and the community how the literary arts have enriched your life.

Here are some suggested topics:

• “The teacher who changed my life”
• “My favorite movies that were based on books, and why I like them”
• “The five greatest books originally published in Spanish”
• “The stage play I saw that I enjoyed the most”
• “Tips for young writers”

Each blog post should your tell your first-person encounter, 500 words or fewer in length. We welcome submissions in English or Spanish. We can’t publish every submission, but will be as inclusive as we can. Email your story to LetsTalk@CoastalLit.org. Thank you!
