2017 San Miguel Summer Writing Workshops

summer writing workshops 2017 image 2 (small)Are you interested in polishing your prose?  Do you want to be more creative with your craft?  Well, then you’re in luck.  We’ve got some great instructors coming down to San Miguel for the 2017 Summer Writing Workshops (August 5 – September 1).  Each of our workshops will be a month long with writers meeting for a one-hour introductory session as well as four three-hour sessions (one per week) in the Sala Literaria in Bellas Artes.

This year we will be offering workshops with Alison Espach (Fiction), Elmo Keep (Creative Nonfiction / Memoir), and Diana Spechler (Live Storytelling).  In order to ensure a high quality workshop experience, we are limiting the number of participants to twelve.

San Miguel

Most people will agree San Miguel is a special place for writers. Maybe it’s the light. Or possibly it’s the colorful buildings. Some say it’s the merging of cultures. Whatever it is, one thing is for certain—Writers flourish in San Miguel. During the 2017 Summer Writing Workshops, writers will spend four weeks learning their craft in classes ranging from storytelling to memoir writing. Whether you are just starting out or you’re a seasoned professional you’ll find inspiration and insight in our writing workshops.
