Frequently asked questions

For speaking/booking/workshop Inquiries, who do I contact?

You can contact me directly at dp@danielpena.me

I'm an editor and I want to be in touch? Should I e-mail you or your agent?

I have an excellent agent, Erin Harris of Folio Literary Management, who can be reached at eharris [at] foliolit.com. If you are getting in touch about opportunities regarding longform features, opinion pieces, or anything else particularly time sensitive, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly at dp [at] danielpena.me.

So, you're a writer but do you also edit? Can you edit my project?

I'm sorry to say that I don't provide editorial services. However, I do teach workshops at the University of Houston-Downtown and Inprint Houston. If you'd like to audit or take one of my courses I'd be glad to have you on and take a look at your work.

Are you the same Daniel Peña from that band?

Indeed, I am the same Daniel Peña from the Starry Mountain Sweetheart Band where I played drums on exactly 1.5 records. Give us a listen on Spotify

I see on Twitter that you are all over the place. Where are you right now?

I'm a dual citizen of both Mexico and the United States. But I also have family in Germany. I split a lot of my time between Mexico City, Houston, and Berlin. You can usually find me in one of those places though I'm mostly based out of Houston.
