“Sergio is passionate about getting the very best out of others. His dedication and encouragement during the June 2019 session fueled every single group member to take their work to the next level. Through his guidance, we learned to better understand our voices as writers and use them in a more effective way. Sergio quickly established a strong group dynamic and sense of trust, enabling us to thrive as writers in the short time we had together. On an individual basis, Sergio was second to none: he had studied our submitted manuscripts inside out, gave us full critiques and could guide each and every one of us through our unique strengths and weaknesses.”
---Russell Mattinson, 2019 Fiction Workshop, Yale Writers’ Workshop

“Sergio is a gifted teacher who is passionate about passing his knowledge of craft, as well as his understanding of the business of writing, onto his students. He gives 150% of himself and expects the same in return. He wants to get to know his students and is incredibly generous with his time outside of class. He pushes you to think more critically about your work and gives you the tools to take your writing to the next level. Sergio’s class was more demanding, more fun, and far more valuable than any writing workshop I’ve ever taken. I came away reinvigorated about writing and with a roadmap to finish my novel.”

“Sergio has a rare gift for working with writers of all genres and styles. The writers in my cohort submitted science fiction, fantasy, literary fiction, historical fiction, YA stories, and novel excerpts, and Sergio identified the strengths of each work and provided actionable feedback for revisions. As a writer working on a hybrid novel, I was impressed by Sergio’s openness to experimental literature and willingness to support writers who are more interested in language and themes than in traditional narrative structures. I finished the week feeling newly inspired to write and revise, thanks to the camaraderie, creativity, and feedback from Sergio and my cohort.”
