Who Will Tell Your Story?

By Maia Williams

This workshop will focus on ways to honor, deepen, and enrich the telling of our memories of home, family, friends, places we’ve traveled, or other experiences from our lives. We will gather in a lovely meeting room near San Miguel’s central park, the Jardín.

The goal of this workshop is for each participant to leave with one or two solid first drafts of a story or a poem, for personal satisfaction or publication. Both new and experienced writers are welcome.

Samples of fine writing will be used to demonstrate literary techniques and as models for our own work, to elicit ideas and memories and inspire us to write with greater honesty and clarity. We will record and transform our thoughts and experiences into engaging poetry or prose—or a hybrid form.

We will discuss short forms of creative nonfiction and poetry by notable writers, such as: David Whyte, Ada Límon, Richard Blanco, Elizabeth Alexander, Billy Collins, Javier Zamora, Judy Grahn, Samantha Reynolds, and Rumi.

The intent is to create a safe and supportive environment for participants to create and share their work. Sharing is optional and encouraged. We will listen to the silence, to each other, and to ourselves.

A second workshop will be offered on Wednesday, December 12, 11:00am–2:00pm.

Workshops are led by Maia Williams, codirector of the San Miguel Writers’ Conference, founding host of Poetry Café Bellas Artes, and publisher of Crossroads: La Vida Creativa en San Miguel de Allende.

Workshops are conducted in English. Seating is limited. Preregister by December 3, or ask a question via email:—Subject: Write! (Dec 5)
