2nd Himalayan Writers Workshop!
January 7th, 2017 – Well Happy New York, more or less…
I know we’re all sort of distracted by current events, and that’s entirely appropriate. Many of us will be marching in solidarity, wherever we may live, on January 21st.
But I want to encourage you to look ahead – if you love writing, and travel – and join me, Laurie Wagner and James Hopkins for this year’s Himalayan Writing Workshop, March 6th-16th.
The Kathmandu Valley has been a lifelong source of amazement and inspiration to me, and my love for the place is contagious. This trip is designed to immerse you in the spiritual and cultural life of Nepal in unforgettable ways. We’ll meet with artists and Buddhist lamas, visit dazzling street markets, explore cremation grounds and monkey temples, and write in hidden courtyards filled with gods, goddesses and pigeons.
We’ll be a small group: just eight people. Our shared goal will be to craft short, image-driven (and highly publishable) “story slices” from one of the most fascinating places on Earth. You’ll be traveling with myself (author of three books set in Nepal), Laurie Wagner (probably the Bay Area’s most gifted writing coach — visit www.27powers.org) and long-time Kathmandu-based Buddhist practitioner and poet James Hopkins.
Here’s the link to the website. Take a look. If you have any questions, please get in touch!
All the best,
