The event is free and open to the public.

Hernandez is a writer, public speaker, performer and communications professional.

Born and raised in Joliet, Hernandez has been writing personally and professionally since childhood.

He was a reporter for 10 years at several suburban daily and weekly newspapers and wrote a “slice of life” column for another 11 years for two community newspapers. He now serves as the Director of Community Relations for the Plainfield Community Unit School District in suburban Chicago.

Hernandez’s writing explores the many complicated facets of life — marriage, family, relationships, identity, aging, parenting, faith, social justice and politics.

He and his wife, Kellie have two adult daughters and welcomed their first grandchild in 2018. They live in Plainfield.

WriteOn Joliet is a welcoming, diverse group of writers of varied skills, interests and experience. The group includes professional journalists, fiction novelists, bloggers, screenwriters, musicians and poets.

The group provides a safe, comfortable and supportive atmosphere for Joliet-area writers to share their work, and constructive feedback so that everyone can benefit from its members’ shared knowledge.
