Sirenland Writers Conference
March 31, 2019 - April 6, 2019 TBA-Italy Italy
Positano is nestled in the heart of the Amalfi Drive, located where the Sorrentine Peninsula bends towards the South, becoming the Gulf of Salerno. In the middle of this panoramic bay lies the Islands of Li Galli, formerly called the “Island of the Sirens” in mythological times. This magical coast can be explored by land or sea. Day trips can also be arranged to visit nearby Almafi, Ravello, Salerno, Napoli and Pompeii. Participation is limited to ten students in each workshop to ensure individual attention and create a close, friendly community. Each day features intensive, small group workshops with writers Dani Shapiro, Jess Walter, and Jim Shepard, private writing time, and talks about living the writers’ life. Evenings will include student and instructor readings, visits from guest writers, and fantastic meals overlooking the beauty of the Tirreno Sea.
