“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!”

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(AT)gmail(DOT)com.

“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 Troncoso’s workshop at Yale exceeded all my expectations. Not only did Sergio devote a great deal of time and care to the work of each student, but he also managed to create a deep sense of camaraderie and cohesion among a group of ten disparate writers in the course of a week--no small feat. I left Sergio’s workshop feeling inspired about my novel and carrying with me useful insights about the voice, point of view, and sentence-level craft of the excerpt I had submitted. This was an invaluable experience.”
