About the Santa Fe Writers Lab:
For 27 years, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops has focused on improving our abilities to discover and understand the world through photographs. Beginning in 2017, Santa Fe Workshops expanded their experiential educational offerings with the introduction of their new Writers Lab, which they 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. 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.
