Every Monday for the past two years, Mano a Mano has hosted a creative writing workshop, facilitated by the New York Writers Coalition. Workers, students and artists come together, sloughing off the prodigious stresses of their city lives through writing. The expectation and camaraderie of the assembled group is thrilling.  Though most of “Los Lunes” (“The Monday People,” as they call themselves on their blog http://loslunes.wordpress.com) have some level of bilingual skill, they choose to write in Spanish (spiced with a good dose of English and Spanglish). Mano a Mano is a safe space for them to meet and express sentiments that may have deep roots from Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and New York, and are heart-stoppingly borderless in their humanity.

"The voices in Voces con Eco are small--and very large--miracles. They sing from the heart, and they write from the soul, and they engage the mind. It's important, and blessed, work. I salute them." -Luis Alberto Urrea, 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist and winner of the 2004 Lannan Literary Award for The Devil's Highway

"Reading Voces con Eco is like watching buds come out in spring. Lovely, heartening and more than a little awe-inspiring." -David Lida, author of First Stop in the New World and Travel Advisory
