Speaking

A fresh perspective for panels and workshops

Désirée Zamorano has wrestled with culture, identity, and the invisibility of Latinas from early on, and addressed that in her commentaries, which have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, NPR’s Latino USA and Publishers Weekly.

She can lend a lively presence to any discussion of the arts, creativity, education, identity and writing. Désirée is a skilled and experienced facilitator and vibrant public speaker. She’s delighted to participate in readings, panels and facilitate workshops. (See past events.)

Notable engagements have included:

  • Generative Fiction Workshop Leader for Women Who Submit
  • Organizer and Moderator for Occidental College’s ISLA Writer Series
  • Pasadena’s LitFest past organizer and moderator, including Jade Chang, Erika Hayasaki and Jessica Ceballos
  • Reader for LA Grand Park’s Noir at Night
  • Moderator for a mystery writers panel that included Naomi Hirahara and Dianne Emley
  • La Crescenta Women’s Club
