In July 2017, we offer ten days of creative writing in
Colombia, where we will work in two locations: in the picturesque town of Villa de Leyva, located in the Central Highlands of Boyacá, and in the sprawling, lively and modern city of Bogotá, set on an Andean high plateau. Here we will live and work in La Candelaria, the city’s Colonial quarter and site of the national palace, the opera house, and many historic churches.
Now in their eighteenth year,
Workshops are designed to capture
the traveler's special state of alertness and curiosity
and use it to heighten the learning experience. By
traveling beyond the familiar surroundings of home,
students can develop the habit of close observation
and the practice of a disciplined writing life.
