A great experience a lived in the Universidad Simón Bolívar was a Writing Workshop organized by a couple of Literature Students from the Universidad Central de Venezuela as required community service for their degree. The main goal was something I was not interested in, but the writing exercises were a phenomenal experience.
Reading your own writings in front of strangers is quite a challenge for someone like me, but as I got to listen to marvelous writings by the other people present, I think it was a fair trade. There are quite excellent writers hidden in the science aisles.
I started writing (in Spanish) in a little Medium site, for anyone who’s interested. Made up abstract stories is most of what you’ll encounter there.
