NYWW in SARDINIA, January 2020

New York Writers Workshop is thrilled to offer our first immersion excursion on the magical island of Sardinia.

New York Writers Workshop leads a seven-day immersion in Sardinia, blending Sardinian culture with NYWW workshops led by poet/writers Ravi Shankar (The Many Uses of Mint) and Tim Tomlinson (This Is Not Happening to You). Open to writers of all levels, the trip will include all (delicious!) meals, accommodations on the island, transportation, event excursions and tuition for writing and translation workshops. We plan to have some of Italy's best writers and translators visit and we will spend time visiting galleries and wineries, eating gourmet meals, reading and writing, and privately touring Grazia Deledda's house (the first Italian woman to win the Nobel Prize in literature). Details are here and spaces are very limited, especially because the stay will be heavily subsidized and represents a great chance to visit a part of Italy you might not have seen. 

Dates: January 13 – 20, 2020

Location: Sardinia, Italy

The immersion will include daily workshops in

  • poetry

  • narrative prose

  • travel writing

  • translation 

and daily visits to local cultural sites led by Sardinian/Italian poets, writers, artists, and guides.  Read about the kinds of meals we’ll be having here, here, and here. Read about the kinds of discussions we’ll be having here, here, and here. Read some of Ravi’s work here, here, and here. Read some of Tim’s work here, here, and here. Read about our fabulous accommodations here*. Read about Sardinian literature here, and here.
