Locals who skipped this year's Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) Conference in San Antonio due to the onset of the pandemic now have a chance to remedy at least some of their FOMO.

Next week, the Esperanza Peace & Justice Center is releasing an edited recording of its "Queer Voices" reading online. The event originally took place as an off-site AWP reading in early March.

"Queer Voices: Nuestra Voz, Nuestro Cuerpo, Nuestro Tiempo — Our Voice, Our Bodies, Our Time" featured prose and poetry from a variety of authors, including Ire'ne Lara Silva, Virginia Grise and Anel Flores.

Part 1 of the reading will be released Monday, June 29, at 7 p.m. and part 2 will go out at the same time on Tuesday, June 30.

The recordings will be uploaded to Esperanza's YouTube and Facebook pages.
