We are a group of writers who enjoy and celebrate the creative process. We believe that the art culture of our communities, like our world, should make room for all voices, including underrepresented groups and people of color. We believe in building community, and therefore participate in, and often sponsor, public readings and creative events throughout the greater Sacramento area.
We regularly meet together as a writing group, usually every third Saturday of the month. We share a light meal, and any writing we have been working on.
We invite you to join us, especially if you are seeking to develop your creative writing in Spanish or English. We believe that art, prose, and poetry is even better when shared.
According to Aztec legend, there are five suns. On their sun-centered stone calendars, we humans endure through many suns or ages. In each sun period, we must adapt to meet the challenge of that sun. During the Sun of Wind, people became monkeys, with hands to hold on to rocks during hurricanes. During the Sun of Rain and Fire, people had to become birds to ascend over erupting volcanoes. During the Sun of Water, people turned into fish to survive the floods. During the Sun of the Jaguar, the jaguars devoured the Titans, who formerly possessed the earth.
The Aztecs recognized their age as that of the Fifth Sun, the Sun of Movement or Earthquakes, an age of great transformation. The next age ~our age ~ has been prophesied as the Sixth Sun, the Sun of New Consciousness. This is a time for awareness of peace and justice among people, of harmony with nature.
From this age, or Sun, comes the name of los Esritores del Nuevo Sol, or the Writers of the New Sun.
