Leslie Sainz has been appointed the Fall 2017 Writer's House Resident at Hub City.
Leslie Sainz will join Hub City as Writer-In-Residence this fall. Leslie is a poet, and her residency will run from September to December.
Leslie Sainz is a first-generation Cuban-American, born and raised in Miami, Florida. She received her MFA in poetry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she served as the Editor-in-Chief of Devil’s Lake. Her work has appeared in or is forthcoming from Black Warrior Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, POOL, Spoon River Poetry Review, and others.
"I’ve been blessed to be a part of so many different writing communities over the years, but none that have managed to fully encapsulate every area of the literary field the way the Hub City Writers Project does. I’m excited to live and work in a city that champions service as much as it does literary citizenship, and I’m looking forward to the inspiration Spartanburg’s vibrant community will lend me and my work."
