Welcome to Under the Volcano’s 2015 online auction. We are immensely grateful to the artists, restaurateurs, home owners, writers, performers and institutions that have made this selection so exciting and diverse. All the proceeds from these outstanding offers go directly to help talented writers offset the cost of attending our January 2016 master classes in Tepoztlán, Mexico.
Established in 2003, Under the Volcano is a ten-day program of writing master classes that convenes every January in the legendary village of Tepoztlán. Intended for committed writers with projets underway, the program is open to poets, short story writers, novelists, journalists, librettists, memoirists and essayists, as well as those working on projects that challenge traditional genre lines.
