WORD OF MOUTH:
Led by food journalist and author Betty Fussell, our Word of Mouth workshop will focus on the human dynamic of eating and telling. A place as rich in food culture as Tepoztlan provides a natural site in which to explore the interactions of both social narratives. By experimenting in a variety of non-fiction forms, from memoir to essays to tweets and blogs, we will discover individually and as a group how best to mouth our words and tell our personal stories through our shared dialogue with food.
UNDER THE VOLCANO:
Under the Volcano is a weeklong retreat for writers who are ready to come up for air in an atmosphere of generous critique. Convening every January in the foothills of central Mexico, we meet outside ordinary time, in a program designed to stimulate both mind and heart. All our workshops combine high-level small group sessions with private conferences and offer ample opportunity for relaxation, discovery and solitude.
Our roots in the village of Tepoztlán enable us to offer our participants an insider’s look at one of Mexico’s most beautiful and historically rich pueblos, one that has maintained its pre-Hispanic dignity through an impressive array of traditions and proud resistance to over-development.
