Hello Friends of Las Cruces Press Women!

The Las Cruces Press Women will be hosting the New Mexico Press Women conference in Las Cruces in April of 2017. Now, we can announce our theme:

Cuentos de la Frontera: 
Opportunities, challenges and responsibilities of telling stories on the border

The 2017 New Mexico Press Women conference and awards banquet will be held April 21-23, 2017 in Las Cruces, New Mexico. It will focus on the many ways we tell stories about life on the U.S./Mexico border, including journalism, fiction, non-fiction, photography and film. Journalists, authors, photographers, filmmakers and historians will come together to share knowledge and experiences through presentations, panels and workshops. The event offers attendees a fresh perspective of border life, and the unique opportunities, challenges and responsibilities of telling its people’s stories and accurately portraying its culture. The conference will also include an optional excursion to Juarez, Mexico, to shed light on the fluidity and shared challenges of both sides.


While we are a small but mighty organization, we’d love to hear from a wider audience – people who might say…come to this – what they’d want to see or who they’d want to hear from. This could be you! Do you have suggestions? Let us know!

Or….just keep us in mind for something to do over a weekend next April…or on Saturday, August 20th when we have the Art of the Interview hosted by LCPW at Thomas Branigan Memorial Library from 10 am to noon.
