All master classes meet daily for three hours, with a light lunch by award-winning Cocinar Mexicano served from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Initial work to be discussed in Tepoztlán is submitted in advance by email, with hard copy distributed on site. There is a 20-page limit for all prose submissions. Participants can expect to workshop up to three pieces over the course of the week.
Copy shops in the village can print documents via email or flash drives for work generated during the week. Laptops, plugs and cables, including extension cables, are essential for all workshops. Mexico uses the same voltage and hardware as in the US.
“I came away with a great many new insights not only on the craft of writing, but also on techniques for teaching my own classes, which was an unexpected plus.”
