The Traveler's Mind

In March 2015 we offer ten days of creative writing in Cuba, beginning our work in Sancti Spíritus, one the seven original villas founded for the Spanish crown by Diego Veláquez, in 1514. This town is situated in the center of the island, a region once prosperous with cattle and sugar cane. Later, our workshop continues in the exuberant port of Havana, a city rich in history and culture.

Now in their sixteenth year, the Traveler's Mind 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.
