Tayari Jones to teach fiction class in Lisbon PORTUGAL June 30 to July 12, 2013

I don’t know if you remember, but this summer I took a workshop with Tayari Jones at the 2012 Napa Valley Writer’s Conference. Tayari is a terrific teacher, and made really interesting comments about everyone’s MSS. Anyway, she is going to be doing a fiction workshop in Portugal. Here is what she has to say about it:
I’m going to be doing the fiction.  The workshop cost is about the same is Breadloaf— $1950, but the difference is that it’s in Europe and there is a lot of cheap housing available– hostels for $25 bucks or so a night.  And of course, for fancy, there is fancy housing. Classes are every other day, and there are activites, tours, etc on the off day, so there will be time to see stuff and have fun.
If you’d like to go, here is the website: http://disquietinternational.org/

Have a fabulous weekend!
