Exploring the intersections of literature, travel and writing in unexpected places

Think of a traveling literary salon for writers who like to journey in the company of fellow writers, and who want something more than a superficial tourist itinerary. What better way to learn about a culture and fire one's own imagination than to see a place through the eyes of writers who know the destination inside out and who can share their intimate knowledge and observations? While writing is as solitary an occupation as one can find, the writers behind Authors-At-Large believe that travel energizes your writing by bringing you outside the confines of the familiar.

Authors-At-Large takes you off-the-beaten literary path on journeys which include:

  • in-depth cultural experiences
  • manuscript consultations with distinguished writers from around the globe
  • time for your own writing and sharing your work
  • immersion in the life and literature of a locale
  • the company of passionate travelers, readers, and writers like yourself

Authors-At-Large plans to continually unveil unusual destinations for discerning literary travelers, so please check back often and sign-up for e-mail updates.

Programs planned for 2006:
May The Philippines
May Hong Kong & Macau
June Caribbean Islands of St. Martin & Barbados
