Hey all, I thought this new Cuba writing program I’m leading next March might be of interest to some of you. I bet Brian and your mentors would support it, as long as you promise to keep up with your work!
Cuba for Writers: March 24-31, 2013. The Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities is pleased to announce a new cultural exchange program designed for practicing and aspiring writers in any genre. Meet Cuban writers, visit Hemingway’s estate, and experience the vibrant reality of Cuba from a uniquely literary perspective. http://masshumanities.org/cuba
It’s not cheap because it’s Cuba. There are all kinds of hoops one must pass through to set up a program like this, and in order to make it work you basically have to pay off 3 different institutions. That said, I’m very excited about it. It’s kind of a hybrid of a writing workshop and a people-to-people program which will include interaction with some of the most important and fascinating writers in Cuba today. This being Cuba, it’s also going to be a great deal of fun, with great music, art, travel, political intrigue, and cultural interaction.
So, please feel free to forward it on to anyone who you might think would be interested, post it to lists, etc. I’d love to fill it up with friends and people with a genuine commitment to the craft.
