“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.”
Rey Rodriguez, 2023 Fiction Workshop, Yale Writers’ Workshop

“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.”
