Students’ Creative Writing Featured in Journal

December 8, 2020

The current issue of The dossier Voces Germinales, includes selected works of the students of the Creative Writing Class in Spanish (SPN4003, Fall 2020) taught By Dr. Isaura Contreras Rios. This dossier was chosen to be part of the second issue of the University of Toledo’s Creative Journal Cohetes.  

Each story was written by a UTSA student taking Dr. Contreras Rios’s course during the Fall semester. Many of their stories involve struggles within life, from losing a loved one to meeting someone special. One student shared how difficult it was to lose her pet dog, which meant the world to her. One story portrayed the struggle of a young immigrant trying to live the American Dream. Another student wrote about discovering and expressing his sexuality within the Latino community.

Dr. Contreras Rios and her students created a website named Crónicas de San Antonio, where students share their favorite places, which features many beautiful sites to discover within San Antonio.

During the Spring 2021 semester, Dr. Contreras Rios will be teaching two online Spanish upper-level courses – SPN 3043, Introduction to Literature, and SPN 4003, Advanced Language Skills.

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures offers a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish, a Spanish Minor, a Master of Arts in Spanish, a Graduate Certificate in Spanish Translation Studies, and a Graduate Certificate in Linguistics.
