Under the Volcano
No, not the Malcolm Lowry novel. I just received some copies of the brochure for the Under the Volcano writer's retreat. The dates for 2007 are January 5-14, in Tepoztlan, Mexico. Faculty include Grace Paly and Luis Urrea teaching fiction, and Martin Espada and Breyten Breytenbach teaching poetry. I've done this program twice--in 2004 with Russell Banks and in 2005 with Grace Paley--and thoroughly enjoyed it. The setting is delightful and January is a great time to be in Mexico. Hmm. I may have to go back.
