Highlights from Our 20th Anniversary Season
A space to dream, speculate and create new work
Set in one of Mexico’s legendary villages, Under the Volcano is an incubator of literary and journalistic talent, a catalyst for writers with books in progress and an international community that transcends borders, languages and place.
A writing residency like no other.
Under the Volcano masterclasses are open to emerging as well as accomplished fiction writers, poets and journalists, and offer high-level feedback and mentorship from award-winning writers in each genre. A roster of distinguished guests joins our core faculty in a program designed to take each participant’s voice to the next level.
“The dream always is to feel that writing is your only job in life. At Under the Volcano that dream becomes real.”
UTV ha cambiado mi manera de entender qué escribo y desde dónde escribo. Me voy feliz y con toda la inspiración para seguir mi sueño.
“The time I spent in Tepoztlán working on my novel was magical. It re-charged my batteries so that I could finally get through my first draft.”
“An unforgettable community that invests in you beyond the confines of the program.”
“Under the Volcano is not just about the writing. It is a personal journey. Never has a combination of place, people and programme felt so powerful and inspiring.”
Under the Volcano fosters a community of writers committed to craft, to society and to being agents of change. There’s no better way to be a writer.
