“DISCOVERING A SENSE OF PLACE” WITH ERIC WEINER
NOVEMBER 10TH - 20TH, 2019
“One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.”
This sentiment, from the writer Henry Miller, lies at the heart of the Himalayan Writers Workshop. What is it about certain places that spark personal transformation, self-discovery? How can we best convey the depth of the travel experience, this “new way of looking at things,” in our writing?
Best-selling travel writer Eric Weiner will guide participants through these questions, and more, during the ten-day workshop. We’ll seek inspiration by reading, and evaluating, some of the classics of travel writing. We’ll also, of course, do plenty of writing of our own. We’ll discuss roadblocks to good travel writing and how best to overcome them. The workshop provides a collegial, nurturing environment, with the glorious Kathmandu Valley as our inspiring backdrop.
Please note that for this workshop we are pleased to offer more luxurious accommodations throughout our 10-day journey.
