“Sergio is an extremely dedicated teacher determined to give everything he can to the class and lead them to bringing all they’ve got as well. His class covers the workshopping of current works, the art of critique, prompts for writing new work, craft discussions, and writing practice/writing life discussions. I’ve been in classes where the instructor is dedicated to one or maybe two of these facets, but Sergio gives his students unparalleled focus in all of these areas that they can take with them, and continue to get value from, long after the workshop is done.”
---Al Kratz, 2023 Fiction Workshop, Yale Writers’ Workshop

“Sergio is a true treasure as a teacher and author. As a teacher, he is so dedicated to his craft that he elevates his students to levels that they themselves never thought possible. He is able to do this magic, because he truly believes in the student’s voice. He fundamentally believes that storytelling is important, especially for those who have been marginalized or not often represented. As an author, he has published many books, essays and short stories, so he has a tremendous amount of experience in the craft of writing. More importantly, he is incredibly generous with his his time and knowledge.... His grace and excitement about the craft are contagious and I could not have asked for a better experience than I had at the Yale Writers’ Workshop. I highly recommend Sergio’s class.”

“Learning from Sergio is like rafting the Colorado river. As the guide, he has a well-crafted plan. The journey is challenging, stimulating, fast-paced. He’s going to push you, possibly beyond what you’re used to, but it will be a beautiful ride and you’ll come out of the adventure a stronger, sharper, more capable writer than you ever thought possible. His materials are relevant, the exercises are very practical, and the discussions are skillfully designed to challenge how you approach and think about writing. But perhaps most impressive, is Sergio’s dedication to his students. It is on a level I have never experienced. He’s there, both feet in, giving 110% of his time, effort, knowledge and passion to his students. It’s yours for the taking. If you’re willing to do the work –and he will ask that of you– this is an opportunity you do not want to miss. Beyond the success, beyond the accolades, beyond all the amazing achievements, lies a truly sincere, kind and passionate man who is doing all of this for the right reasons.”
