Writers' Studio

July 19 - 26, 2023

Instructor: Mary Hall Surface

The Writing Program invites participants to find inspiration in the landscape and character of a region known for attracting generations of writers and artists.  Students will reflect on a range of writings by authors such as John Steinbeck and D.H. Lawrence and paintings by artists like JMW Turner and David Hockney that capture the singular beauty and history of Amalfi, Ravello, Positano and more.  The key themes and perspectives of these writings and art works will offer vivid prompts crafted by the instructor for the students' own creative writing.  Students will tour many of the places that inspired writers and artists of the past, writing in gardens, lemon tree groves and cafes as they respond to the landscape, architecture and art that surrounds them.  An informal reading of students’ work for course participants and guests will conclude the session.

Cost: $2,895 (not including airfare)
