The Cuba Writers Workshop 2016
Cuba - January 2016
With a cultural lineage like Cuba’s it is no wonder Americans have been trying to return to that amazing island for over half a century. Stony Brook Southampton’s MFA in Creative Writing & Literature can bring you to one of the most elusive locations in the Western Hemisphere. While the workshop is the anchor of the program, your stay will be packed with a rich schedule of activities, electives, excursions and the free time to write.
Grab your laptop, muddle some mint, and get ready for Cuba.
