STATEMENT ON RACISM IN THE COUNTRIES WE LOVE 

ANNOUNCING

UNDER the VOLCANO

January 9-29, 2021

WORDS of WITNESS:
A COMMUNITY of the IMAGINATION

Three weeks of intimate master classes, inter-galactic conversations, readings and craft talks by some of the leading writers of our time.

POETRY • FICTION • NON-FICTION • JOURNALISM

After 17 years in the legendary village of Tepoztlán, Mexico, we’re taking our next season virtual. Not only that, we’re expanding. After months in lockdown, we’ve learned that the virtual is also real. We’ve also realized that we can do things with Zoom and other platforms that we could only dream of before—such as leap across national borders and exist simultaneously in different time zones.

So in January 2021 Under the Volcano will convene in cyberspace, continuing to offer the intimate master classes and far-ranging conversations for which we’re known. Thank you, pandemic. As you ravage our beloved planet, you may also be bringing us closer. And as you take us to the brink, you’re also making us think.

Instead of 10 intense days in Tepoztlán, we’ve spread our program out to have more room to breathe. And instead of the optional two-week extension residency we normally offer every January, we’ve built that extra writing time into the 2021 program.

Our program begins with an opening weekend designed to inspire our collective mind as we take stock on the first anniversary of the pandemic. We’ll have an invocation from two extraordinary poets and hear from leading scientists, novelists and thinkers as we take our existing community of writers to a new dimension.

"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."

NATALIE HART, United Kingdom

“I had been hungry for an opportunity to write in Mexico, my ancestral homeland. The energy of Tepoztlán nurtured my creative process and allowed me access to stories I’d forgotten.”

NORMA LILIANA VALDEZ, California

"This residency has done more than change my words; it has given me an ongoing community to help give these words meaning."

ERIN SOROS, Vancouver, Canada

"Magic happens when you meet like-minded writers who can help you see your work and obstacles from a higher elevation. to do this in a place of such natural beauty and energy is an incredible opportunity."

MAUREEN FAN, San Francisco, California

"My time in Tepoztlán helped me contrast my lived experience in the West as a Native woman with a different landscape and community. I met writers from all over the world, broadened my networks, and made friends that will be with me for a lifetime."

CMARIE FUHRMAN, Boise, Idaho

UNDER THE VOLCANO IN THE NEWS

These arrived the other day — all twelve are earmarked for friends here, but, if you want to buy your own, ebook and hardback available here: https://www.weidenfeldandnicolson.co.uk/contributor/tim-macgabhann/
If you're in the US, there's good news: my first novel, Call Him Mine, is out there from July 16th. I guess the best thing to do is order via your local bookseller, or Amazon US if the price is better for you.
If you're in Mexico, both novels are available for preorder: Call Him Mine is out on August 11th, in hardback, paperback, and ebook, and How to Be Nowhere is out in ebook only on July 23rd. Because we're still looking for a distributor to get copies to bookshops here — and I'm grateful for any recommendations you might have on that — for the moment you can only get them via Amazon MX: https://www.amazon.com.mx/s?i=stripbooks&rh=p_27%3ATim+Macgabhann&s=relevancerank&text=Tim+Macgabhann&ref=dp_byline_sr_book_1
Si estás en México, ambas novelas están ya en preventa: CALL HIM MINE, en pasta dura, pasta blanda, y ebook a partir del 11 de agosto. HOW TO BE NOWHERE, la segunda, sale en Kindle el 23 de julio. Como seguimos en la búsqueda de un distribuidor de confianza pa'que salgan en librerías (y agradezco cualquier recomendación que tengan), por el momento solo se venden a través de Amazon MX: https://www.amazon.com.mx/s?i=stripbooks&rh=p_27%3ATim+Macgabhann&s=relevancerank&text=Tim+Macgabhann&ref=dp_byline_sr_book_1

El discurso de David Huerta al recibir el premio FIL de Lenguas Romances fue profundamente conmovedor: “El mejor poema del mundo es la mente humana”.
