Latin American Writers Institute - LAWI

Applying to Hostos > Office of Admissions > Special Programs <--

Latin American Writers InstituteFounded in 1987 by Professor Isaac Goldemberg while teaching at City College, the Latin American Writers Institute (LAWI) has become, over its first sixteen years of existence, a strong supporter of Latino writers whose work appears in Spanish, English, or both languages. In 1991, LAWI received the Manhattan Borough President's "Excellence in Arts Award."

Hostos Community College became the institute's new home in 1992. LAWI is the central advocacy and service organization for the dissemination of the work of Latino writers in the United States. LAWI offers established and emerging Latino writers many services related to their professional degrees. It also develops new talent and encourages understanding of and public interest in new writers by hosting and sponsoring writing workshops, readings, and conferences. LAWI publishes books under its imprint, The Latino Press, and it also publishes Hostos Review/Revista Hostosiana, a journal devoted to culture.

In keeping with LAWI's goal of increasing intercultural understanding, its activities are designed for a multiethnic audience. The institute seeks to recognize and encourage cultural diversity in its membership and all of its programs.

For more information contact Professor Isaac Goldemberg at (718) 518-6589/6680, or visit the office in Room B-464.
