August – Proyecto Latina

August – Proyecto Latina


August brings sunshine, barbecues and Proyecto Latina! This month we are featuring Proyecto emerging writer and Chicago Public School teacher Ericka Sanchez. A few years back, I met Ericka at one of our Proyecto Latina readings and thought what a fabulous storyteller.

When Ericka isn’t in the trenches of the the public school system she is our Proyecto Latina correspondent doing interviews with Latinas making an impact in our community. You can also thank Ericka for the chisme box!

As an emerging writer Ericka will be sharing some hilarious and reflective new work that hopefully will inspire you to pick up the pen or keyboard and write. –Diana Pando

Our friend Jesse Iniquez has generously donated his space.

Ericka Sanchez is a transplant from Mexico, raised in one of the cultural meccas for Mexicanos, Little Village. Her current incarnation as a school teacher by day allows her to run rampant for her love of photography, writing and crafting, music and movie obsessions as well as supporting fellow Latinas and their creative imaginings! Erick is currently a Proyecto Latina Correspondent.
