Jeff Morgan, English professor in the College of Arts and Sciences, participated in a writing workshop, Casa San Juan, in Antigua, Guatemala, over the holiday break.
Writers, college professors, poets and travelers who value the benefits from group writing provided rigorous workshops, one-on-one time and informal conversations with other writers and group gatherings.
“Working with my son was the highlight,” said Morgan. “We had five or six people in three separate workshop group for two hours during three mornings. We each gave a 90-minute craft talk and led a panel discussion on writing.”
Creating a nurturing writing group was central to the workshop which also offered free writing time. Participants were able to experiment with their writing or tighten up prose or poetry manuscripts.
