Santa Fe, New Mexico is one of the world’s most magical cities and a great place for writing. It lies at the foot of the majestic Sangre de Christo Mountains in the high desert of Northern New Mexico. It is the third oldest city in America, founded in 1607. The Palace of the Governors on the Plaza was built in 1610, making it the seventh oldest building in the United States. The city is a center for art, Native American crafts, and great food. It has over 300 galleries, extraordinary museums, and historic buildings reflecting New Mexico’s Spanish and Native American heritage. You can go horseback riding in the mountains or take a side trip to Taos and visit the famous pueblo. Santa Fe also has a distinguished literary tradition. The legendary Archbishop of Santa Fe Jean Baptiste Lamy inspired Willa Cather’s masterpiece, Death Comes for the Archbishop, and General Lew Wallace, who was governor of the territory, wrote his epic novel, Ben Hur, in his office on the Plaza. It’s also the site of some of Andy’s childhood literary and not-so-literary adventures.
Mornings after breakfast you’ll attend workshops from 10 am to noon devoted to literary craft. Be prepared to bring portions of your writing projects. We will discuss them in group and individually with Linda and Andy. Afternoons will consist of exploring your environment, sampling the local fare, and finding the best spots to linger and write.
