Workshops| Panels | Live Readings

I will be available to book readings and panels this upcoming spring and summer. If you would like for me to come out to your university or community college please email: riosdelaluz@gmail.com.

I offer generative writing workshops on:

  • Writing as an exploration of healing

  • Exploring the history of our bodies

  • Writing using elements of Magick/Witchcraft

  • Empowerment via fictionalizing memoir

Live Readings:

One of my favorite things to do as a writer is to share my fiction out loud. I read to entertain and I read to make it a point that you better listen to the femme on the stage. I have read in Portland, Los Angeles, Tempe, Austin, San Antonio, & many more. Invite me to your local bookstore!
