WRITE BY THE LAKE:
Jan. 26 - Feb. 4, 2018
Next winter marks the eighteenth Guatemalan workshop (WBTL), with a time-tested format in a rare and magical location—the Mayan village of San Marcos La Laguna, surrounded by five volcanoes, on the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. (You’llenjoy an additional overnight stay in the lovely town of Antigua prior to arriving at Lake Atitlan.) Joyce welcomes writers of all levels, from those publishing work or completing MFA’s to others just beginning to pursue writing.
ONE DAY WORKSHOP:
Dec. 17, 2017
Join Joyce and up to seven other writers in her home for an intensive one-day workshop. Over the course of the day, each person's writing will be individually workshopped. Other topics covered will concern both issues of craft and more global questions, such as identifying one's themes; creating a structure; the relationship between memoir and history; locating one's voice; the ethics and personal issues associated with telling stories from our own lives; and the writing process itself. (This includes the terror of NOT writing, and the many impediments we throw in our way to keep us from telling our stories.)
