Under the Volcano provides an instant, generous community for writers that aims to bring each participant’s voice to the next level. We offer an annual nine-day intensive with celebrated faculty and a month-long residency in the legendary village of Tepoztlán, in the foothills of the great volcanoes, just outside Mexico City.

Join accomplished peers from around the world for nine days of master classes, readings and performances. Our low-cost follow-up residency allows you to transform your workshop experience into a personal writing retreat, with personal guidance to help you maximize the time devoted to your project.
