TAMIU Grad, Author Publishes First Collection
Lyrics of Poems: A Collection of Lyrics, Poems, and Prose will be shared at a poetry reading and booking signing event at the Texas A&M International University Bookstore Wednesday, Mar. 19 from 1 – 3 p.m.
Admission is free and open to the public.
North Dakota native and TAMIU graduate Rafael Contreras, will be reciting poems and lyrics from his recently published book.
Contreras explained that his lyrics and poems represent his transition from high school to now.
In addition to publishing a book, Contreras began an online blog dedicated to help young individuals become professionals in both work and school. TheProfessionalist.com, which launched in January 2013, provides exclusive interviews and experiences from other professionals and TAMIU alumni.
The blog is geared toward high school graduates or students “who are at that tipping point of becoming young professionals,” he explained. Contreras now works at the TAMIU Office of Recruitment and School Relations as an outreach and retention specialist, and knows first hand what incoming students are going through.
Contreras has worked with over 1000 students at TAMIU and loves being able to relate to his students and guide them through the tough transition from high school to college.
Lyrics of Poems is Contreras’ first published book, but hopes to publish a second installment soon.
The book Lyrics of Poems: A Collection of Lyrics, Poems, and Prose is currently available online at barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com.
