Mazza Writers in Residence

The Poetry Center's Mazza Writer in Residence program is supported by the Sam Mazza Foundation, with the foundation in 2020 having made a ten-year commitment to supporting the program. The weeklong residency, focused on local writers, was begun in Fall 2017 as a pilot project, then picked up a year later to happen each year in Fall and Spring: poets Tongo Eisen-Martin, Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta, novelist Juliana Delgado Lopera, and playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb have been our Mazza Writers in Residence so far, with Wendy Trevino scheduled for Spring 2020 (postponed to a later date).
