Extension Residency Option: Stay On and Write in Tepoztlán!
We strongly encourage all master class participants to take advantage of our two-week follow-up residency, which allows you to create a customized writing retreat immediately after the workshop program. Stay on at the glorious Posada la Presa to continue your writing project as part of a community of fellow writers. A one-week extension is also possible.
The price for either length is the same and includes an initial one-hour conference with UTV director Magda Bogin to help set goals for maximum use of this valuable, unstructured extra time. A closing conference is also available upon request at an additional cost. Departure is on Sunday mornings, with weekly dinners for all extension participants also covered in the price. Under the Volcano will assist with travel arrangements on a case by case basis.
Participants typically meet for coffee and occasional shared meals. Recent groups have scheduled frequent peer-led meetings to share work. Invited guest writers may also be in residence during this period and will offer public readings as opportunities arise.
A $500 fee covers your individual writing conference, group dinners, and our costs for setting up your residency housing and arranging return transportation. Proof of additional health coverage for the residency period is required of all participants. Limited need-based fellowship assistance may be available for the extension, subject to available resources.
