new for 2021! 
BLACK WRITERS MATTER FUND

UNDER the VOLCANO 2021

april 9-30

A COMMUNITY of the
IMAGINATION

A three-week writing residency and literary festival rolled into one.

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

POETRY • FICTION • NON-FICTION • JOURNALISM

Bringing the world closer and building connections across borders…
Because the virtual is also real. And because words matter.

In April 2021 Under the Volcano will convene online, continuing to offer the intimate master classes and far-ranging conversations for which we’re known, but expanding from one week to three and adding layers we could only dream of before. Think of it as a cyber residency, with time to write, interact with accomplished peers from around the world and take part in a host of exciting side events, all from the comfort of home. In other words, a space to dream, speculate and create new work. So… open up your calendar for three weeks that just might change your life.

“The dream always is to feel that writing is your only job in life. At Under the Volcano that dream became real.”

TIM MACGHABANN, Ireland

“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.”

REYNA GRANDE, California

“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

“Under the Volcano is unforgettable. It gave me time and space to breathe and write. I made lasting relationships in such a short time and have so much creative momentum now that I’m home.”

JACQUI CORNETTA, New York

“Friends ask me why I go to Mexico for a writing workshop. I’m exposed to people, writers, and ideas that are outside the context of the typical literary writers workshop that exists in the US.”

IAN GOLUB, Washington, DC

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

Volcano alert! 🌋 On may 4th, the poets Cyrus Cassells and Kristina Bicher (@okbichr) will launch their new chapbooks and participate in this conversation with Magda Bogin. Livestream available at Facebook.com/utvmx, join us!🌋 .
