Show Up & Write! Saturday Retreats in the Country

Who Will Tell Your Story?

For the first time, The Wild Muse small group writing workshop series, Show Up & Write!, will be offered on two consecutive Saturdays (you spoke and she listened), in a gorgeous home and setting, near San Miguel’s famed botanical garden, El Charco del Ingenio. Ride sharing will be offered from Centro.

The goal of these workshops is for each participant to produce at least one solid draft of two stories or poems per week, for personal satisfaction or publication. All levels of experience are welcome.

Samples of fine writing will be used to demonstrate literary techniques and as models for our own work, to elicit ideas, memories, and inspire us to write with greater honesty and clarity. We will record and transform our thoughts and experiences into engaging poetry or prose—or a hybrid form.

We will discuss short forms of creative nonfiction and poetry by notable writers, including: Richard Blanco, Ada Límon, David Wagoner, Glenis Redmond, William Stafford, Linda Hogan, Javier Zamora, Judy Grahn, David Whyte, Ellen Bass, Billy Collins, and Rumi.

We’ll learn ways to honor, deepen, and enrich the telling of our memories of home, family, places we’ve traveled, or other experiences from our lives.

The intent is to create a safe environment for participants to share their work and receive positive feedback. Sharing is optional and encouraged. We will listen to the silence, to each other, and to our selves.

Sean and Megan Guilfoyle, two chefs consumed by wanderlust, have built a foundation in fine dining and dietary conscious cuisine in a variety of kitchens. In search of a better quality of life, they have been called to San Miguel de Allende, and look forward to expressing their art form in the most beautiful city in the world.

Workshops are led by Maia Williams, co-director of the international San Miguel Writers’ Conference, founder of San Miguel’s Poetry Café Bellas Artes, and publisher of Crossroads: La Vida Creative en San Miguel de Allende.
Workshops are conducted in English. Seating is limited. Pre-register by Oct. 10, or ask a question, via email: wownowmx@gmail.com - Subject: Write! (Saturdays)
