There are two universal languages—images and the written word. Developing and refining our skills to communicate clearly with images and words is critical to our success as creative people.
For 27 years, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops has focused on improving our abilities to discover and understand the world through photographs. More than 20,000 amateur and professional photographers have followed their passion for image-making to the inspiring high-desert environs of Santa Fe. Now, we embrace the world of words.
Beginning in 2017, Santa Fe Workshops expands our experiential educational offerings with the introduction of our new Writers Lab, which we envision as a community of storytellers from all walks of life, professions, and disciplines that gather in the mountains of New Mexico and on the ever-changing island of Cuba to live the writer’s life.
As with our photography workshops, this new series of workshops for writers holds high the value of community, craft, and the creative process. We offer a collaborative, supportive, and positive environment, where a passion for writing and storytelling—and a hunger for shared experiences—are the most important ingredients.
Santa Fe Writers Lab, for both aspiring and established writers, began in January with two sold-out, week-long workshops in Havana, Cuba and further unfolds in Santa Fe with eight, week-long workshops as well as eight, one-day weekend intensives in May of 2017.
Our private campus in Santa Fe, tucked away in the foothills overlooking the city, has long been a sanctuary for learning and study. We share this magical place with a Carmelite Monastery and the resulting serenity, coupled with beautiful courtyards and dramatic views of the Jemez Mountains and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, provides a perfect place to think and write.
Inspiring guest instructors renowned in the literary world provide daily lessons on the art and craft of writing. Collaborative and constructive conversation with fellow writers, quiet time to reflect and write, warm sunshine and cool mountain air along with fresh and healthy food from Chef Kim all work together to provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity in magical Santa Fe to enhance and move forward your writing.
Join us in Havana or Santa Fe and be fully present for an experiential educational experience bound to change your life as a writer and as a person.
