2014 Destination Writing Workshops
Laura’s intimate workshops are dedicated to the notion that writing can be a pleasure as well as a serious craft. Immerse yourself in your writing and be inspired by the art, food, and culture of Italy or Mexico. Laura Fraser, who knows the local territory and languages well, will open doors to a rich, authentic experience. Workshops include daily classes, receptions, excursions, individual conferences, and some meals (varies by location). Luxurious, historic accommodations in prime getaway locations. Nonfiction, emphasis on memoir, travel, and personal essay. Maximum number of students: 10.
Nov. 1-8 (Day of the Dead): Mexican Writing Fiesta, San Miguel de Allende The Day of the Dead is beautiful in San Miguel—filled with marigold-strewn altars with mementos to the departed. It is a lovely week to focus on memories. There are many events all week, including the La Calaca arts festival. The workshop is held in a restored, 300-year-old colonial mansion in the center of town, under outdoor porticos. SOLD OUT
