Rivera, Raquel

Raquel Rivera is a writer, editor, and children’s book author who uses children’s literature as a lens for looking at creative writing. Workshops analyze current and classic stories, and use samples of her own work to discuss process and share experiences as a working writer. Raquel offers two workshops for CEGEP students and is also always pleased to develop a new workshop for a particular group. All workshops emphasize class participation.
