“Sergio Troncoso has dedicated his life to creating a positive learning environment through reading and making a difference in people’s lives. His presentation at Ysleta Middle School was an enthusiastic inspiration to parents, teachers, and most of all students who are growing up in struggling neighborhoods as did Mr. Troncoso. This presentation set the foundation to encourage multiculturalism and academic excellence in schools, and promoted literacy. Mr. Troncoso is a role model for bilingual communities. His life stories gained the respect of everyone in attendance, infusing his audience with tremendous motivation and instilling in them an appetite for the joys of learning through literacy. His passion for literacy, literature, and bilingualism was empowering!”
Melissa A. Jordan, Communities in Schools Program Coordinator, Ysleta Middle School, El Paso, Texas

Sergio Troncoso is a sought-after speaker at high schools, colleges, and universities across the nation. To schedule a reading or appearance, or to arrange a talk with your book club or school group, contact him at SergioTroncoso@gmail.com.

“Sergio Troncoso reads with humor, dramatic flair, and such genuine sincerity that the audience cannot help but be deeply engaged and moved. His fiction and nonfiction defy easy stereotypes or expectations and should appeal to anyone interested in what it means to be an American, what it means to be a father, husband, daughter, sister, brother, or son. Sergio and his writing speak to life in the borderlands between Mexico and the United States, female and male, parent and child, healthy and ill in ways that are at once enlightening, provocative, stirring, and satisfying. His warmth and intelligence make everyone feel included in the conversation.”
Eileen Pollack, author of The Only Woman in the Room, and professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

“I am happy to have taken Sergio Troncoso’s workshop as I connected with him and learned more in a ‘one on one session’ than any book on writing could ever have taught me. The Yale Writers’ Conference has been very inspirational, inspiring and professional!”
---Desiree Willmes

“This past June, I was honored to attend Session I of the 2016 Yale Writers’ Conference, where I studied Creative Nonfiction for ten days under the guidance of Sergio Troncoso. The experience I had resonates with me to this day. I entered the Conference as a recent college graduate, knowing only that I loved to write; I emerged with a radically altered perspective as to how I could cultivate that long-held passion into a life, education and career. Working with Sergio was an incredible experience, and he has remained an invaluable mentor and source of inspiration. I couldn’t have asked for a better guide through unfamiliar writing territory, nor could I have asked for better classmates to work with along the way. I highly recommend this experience to anyone and everyone with a love for the craft.”
---Beverley Catlett
