The Traveler's Mind

In July 2017, we offer ten days of creative writing in Colombia, where we will work in two locations: in the picturesque town of Villa de Leyva, located in the Central Highlands of Boyacá, and in the sprawling, lively and modern city of Bogotá, set on an Andean high plateau. Here we will live and work in La Candelaria, the city’s Colonial quarter and site of the national palace, the opera house, and many historic churches.

Now in their eighteenth year, the Traveler's Mind Workshops are designed to capture the traveler's special state of alertness and curiosity and use it to heighten the learning experience. By traveling beyond the familiar surroundings of home, students can develop the habit of close observation and the practice of a disciplined writing life.
