The greatest challenge of writing is to discover your voice, a quest for a treasure
that can be at once elusive, illusory and irrefutable. One way of doing that is
to recognize the many sources of who we are, in myth, history, literature, and memory.
Using stories, history, and cultural events, we'll share and develop literary strategies
for revealing our own complex origins and giving them voice.
JOHN PHILLIP SANTOS was the first Mexican-American Rhodes scholar to study at Oxford.
He holds degrees in English Literature and Language from Oxford University and in
Philosophy and Literature from the University of Notre Dame. He is a recipient of
the Academy of American Poets' Prize at Notre Dame and the Oxford Prize for fiction.
Santos is currently a Visiting Fellow at the Watson Institute for Inter-national
Studies at Brown University. Santos' 1999 family memoir, Places Left Unfinished
at the Time of Creation (Viking / Penguin) was a finalist for the National Book
Award. In 2006 it was selected for the "One Book, One City" reading program in
San Antonio.
