Summer 2007 Auvillar Writers' Workshops in France

The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA's) studio facility is located in southwest France in the charming village of Auvillar, between Toulouse and Bordeaux and four hours north of Barcelona.

You'll experience small group workshops, one-on-one critiques, and readings. Led by acclaimed writers Helen Benedict and Stephen O'Connor, and poets Nick Carbó and Denise Duhamel, the workshops are held in Moulin à Nef, our seventeenth-century studio facility seated on the banks of the Garonne River. Free time will be built into the schedule to explore the region, from archeological sites and museums to local markets.

Registration deadline May 1st.
