Excerpts from a recent email inviting me to join a literary trip to Cuba led by Lee Gutkind, founder of Creative Nonfiction magazine:
I am writing to invite you to take part in the precedent-breaking workshop I will be teaching this winter in the enigmatic country where Ernest Hemingway wrote his most inspired books: Cuba.
What makes a country enigmatic?! And is Cuba only mysterious to you because you’ve never been there?
Afternoons and evenings, we’ll explore the city, the countryside, museums, markets, sporting events, and cafes, interviewing and observing the Cuban people and learning about the diversity that makes them unique.
Sounds like visiting a zoo.
If you click through for more information, it doesn’t get any better:
To enable you to become a better writer and truly begin to understand this enigmatic country, the spirited and gracious Cuban people are the focus of this program.
The $3,695 trip is sold out, but you can join the waiting list here. Or just poke fun at this on the internet. 😁
