If Dante had had the San Miguel experience, he may have written more about heaven and less about hell.
I came to the workshop thinking I wasn’t ‘really’ a writer. I left knowing I am a writer and I discovered the two focuses I need to pursue in my writing.
I came away deeply changed and enriched, and with a great longing to come back.
San Miguel Conference is one of the best literary gatherings in the Western Hemisphere. It is the perfect blend of local and international, from the classes, readings and panels to the fireworks, dancing and celebration under the stars. It rates multitudes of stars. The best.
The San Miguel Writers’ Conference is unique. Where else can writers from three countries rub shoulders and learn from each other? Utterly invigorating! The keynotes are profound, the instructors generous, the atmosphere an intoxicating mix of head’s-down professional and Mexican fun.
I’ve been to a lot of conferences and this has been my best experience so far, hands down. I’ve never felt such a sense of community among writers. I felt not one bit of the jealousy and competitiveness typical of these kinds of events. This conference is special.
If you are a passionate reader this is the literary event for you . . . it is an opportunity to break bread with the giants. I was thrilled, moved, inspired, and changed!! And my god! Naomi Wolf was incredible.
What a stimulating, delightful time. Everything was perfect; weather, meals, ambience, but especially the excitement of being around such talented, inspiring people.
Without a doubt, the most high quality writers’ conference I have ever attended! Eloquent and entertaining speakers, informative, relative sessions and a magical location. Bravo!
If you are looking at the cost of the Conference and wondering, ‘Can I afford to go?’ I will tell you, if you are serious about a writing career or avocation, you can’t afford not to go!
