Announcing the second annual Writing Workshops in San Miguel

Join us this summer in lovely San Miguel de Allende for an unforgettable month of writing and community. We’re very excited about our newest program and plan to make this year even better than last! Faculty and Guests will include:

Joseph and Amanda Boyden, Andrei Codrescu, Alex Espinoza, Dinty W. Moore, Steven Church, Bill Lavender, Jim Grimsley, Hank Lazer, Michael Winter, and many more

San Miguel is located in the mountains north of Mexico City. The high elevation keeps the summer months cool. It is close enough to Mexico City for weekend visits, and even closer to such historic locations as Dolores Hidalgo, Querétero, and historic Guanajuato, famous for its mummies, silver mines, and as the birthplace of Diego Rivera.   The program will provide excursions to nearby historic sites, and participants are also welcome to travel on their own on weekends.

Application for The Writing Workshops in San Miguel de Allende is now open.  The priority deadline to sign up is January 15, 2009. Some new courses we are offering, or hope to offer, this summer include: A Literary Science Fiction and Fantasy Workshop in Fiction, Playwriting, and Screenwriting; A Food & Literature Class, which will feature many exciting readings, and food related excursions;A Chicano Literature Course; A Documentary Production Course; TWO CREATIVE NON-FICTION workshops, with Dinty W. Moore and Steven Church
