Under the Volcano’s online workshops, known as pods, allow individuals or small clusters of writers to pursue their work with the same level of support and critique we offer in our Mexico master classes. Limited to three participants, our pods convene twice a month by Skype for 2-3 hours depending on the number of writers, with email submissions shared in advance.
Pod members have worked on projects ranging from memoir to short stories to essays and novels. UTB director, novelist and writer Magda Bogin leads the online workshops and provides detailed written comments and feedback on all work.
Cost:$500/month; three month minimum commitment.
“Magda is the best reader of drafts I’ve ever encountered. She sees both the micro and the macro issues. Her feedback is honest and encouraging. The quality of writers I’ve been with has been excellent. I’d recommend one of her pods to anyone who wants a space to read, write and give and receive feedback.”
