With emphasis placed on the story titled 'Chac Mool' by Carlos Fuentes, the seminar participants will be invited to think about the epistolary form and the effects it can generate. They will then be invited to experiment with the form in various ways in an attempt to communicate their concerns with regard to diverse socio-cultural events or crises.
