Eat-Write-Travel is excited to announce our NEW way for us to gather as writers...The Writing House!
 

We have designed a Life-Changing week of deep inspiration and profound time for your writing! Join us at the historic Mabel Dodge Luhan House in the magicial town of Taos, New Mexico.: http://mabeldodgeluhan.com/.

Mabel Dodge was a prominent figure in the arts and society of New York City and Europe. When Mabel left New York to settle in Taos, marrying a full-blooded Taos Pueblo man by the name of Tony Luhan, the 1930s New Yorker Magazine cartoons quipped about Mabel in Taos!

D. H. Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Willa Cather, Ansel Adams and others found inspiration that would shape their lives’ work while visiting Tony and Mabel’s home. And you will too!
 

Plan, start, work on, or finish your manuscript of poems!  Your novel! Your Memoir! Commit to YOUR Writing ! Luxuriate in long stretches of luscious time!
