Cuba Writer’s Program!

IMG_5424Hey all, I don’t think I’ve mentioned this here before, though I’ve been meaning to. There’s a really exciting creative writing workshop that I’m involved in putting together in Havana, Cuba, from 10-18 May, 2016, with novelist and memoirist Ann Hood and essayist/short story writer Alden Jones. If you’ve been interested in traveling to Cuba and you want to do it with a group of people that are passionate about writing, this is something you’ll definitely want to check out. Here’s the link:

We have either one or two openings left. If anyone’s interested, message me or go ahead and apply via the CWP website!

    FYI, for anyone who might be interested in Tim’s program–it would count as a residency substitution.

    Thanks for pointing that out, Brian. We’re down to one or possibly two spots, so if anyone wants them they’ll have to act pretty quickly. We may be offering something similar in 2017 too, though, so don’t worry too much if you miss out this time.
