San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with Judyth Hill
February 2-9, 2020


Register Now!

Re-ignite your creative energies in colonial Mexico, with its magical colors and charm, its exotic food and culture. San Miguel de Allende, a historic treasure high in the Sierra Madre mountains of central Mexico, stands still in time with its pastel-colored houses, centuries old churches and cobbled streets. A UNESCO world heritage site ranked among the top travel destinations of the world, San Miguel offers a slow pace, fabulous food and a cultural experience not to be forgotten.

Reenergize your writing and your life in beautiful, historic San Miguel de Allende!

Refresh, re-invigorate - and complete – a long-held dream, using the WildWriting techniques as a springboard. We plan the work, and work the plan.

We’ll have plenty of luxurious, relaxed writing time, combined with enthralling, delicious, explorations: because we Can!

As ever, we will also write from our seen and felt experiences in this town of constantly astonishing details: angels in the architecture, the open cafes, the amazing doors….we’ll jot and scribble, make poems and notes…pieces of overheard conversations. We’ll let the town and our traveling adventures profoundly enter us and our writing.

Our San Miguel workshop includes 12 hours of writing class, ample time for personal writing, daily progress check-ins, and 3 hours of private meeting time with Judyth.
