Esmeralda Santiago’s visit: a boost for creative writing at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazon

With the desire to inspire a community of united Puerto Rican writers, Puerto Rican author Esmeralda Santiago visited the Sacred Heart University to launch a literary mentoring project among students in the Creative Writing program.

“It is a fairly big project for us, so that these writers can be found and bring those works to the people who want them, who are looking for them. I think that through the accompaniment that we are trying to integrate in these spaces, a better space for dialogue can definitely be opened between those of us who are in the United States or in other parts of the world and those who are here, because there is not much connection ” said Santiago.

Currently, Sagrado is the only university in Puerto Rico that offers a baccalaureate program and a master’s program in Creative Writing. Since last year, it also offers the option of a combined Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and Literature with Master of Arts in Creative Writing degree.
