winter poetry getaway
September 7, 2015
If the combination of holiday fatigue and short, dark days seems an inauspicious way to begin the new year, consider Mexico.
San Miguel Poetry Week, in scenic San Miguel de Allende (a UNESCO World Heritage City), begins Saturday, January 2 and continues through January 8, 2016. Classes, readings, workshops, lectures, plus time to enjoy San Miguel, add up to a welcome respite from winter gloom. The 2016 faculty includes Jennifer Clement, Toi Derricotte, Paul Muldoon and others.
Both published and novice writers are welcome. Enrollment is limited and priority is given to early applicants and prior participants. Learn more on the San Miguel Poetry Week website and Facebook group.
