Adela Najarro is President of the Círculo de poetas and Writers Board of Directors. Please join Círculo for our summer conference.

  • This year’s conference includes two break-out sessions where participants can generate poetry and prose. Each workshop is open to all writers, from those just starting their writing journey to published authors.
  • After lunch, we will celebrate the life and work of Francisco X. Alarcón.
  • The conference concludes with a "Reading and Open Mic" open to all participants.
  • Go to for more details, including the entire conference schedule and workshop descriptions!

The conference is free and open to the public, though Círculo does accept donations. No one will be turned away due to a lack of funds. However, the organization would appreciate a $25 donation or you can also become a Círculo member or continue your membership by posting the annual $50 dues. Go to for more details.

Adela's books are now available from the publishers or through your local bookstore.

My Childrens, a chapbook with teaching resources is now available

with a library and educators discount through the publisher's website.

With My Childrens, I hope to bring Latinx poetry into the classroom so that students can explore poetry, identity, and what it means to be Latinx in US society. Each poem in the collection is accompanied by a nonfiction comment, a writing prompt, comprehension questions, and “Look It Up!” suggestions.

The poems and writing prompts are just right for the classroom!

Order to today. Go to the publisher's website for a library and educator discount!
