The theme of the next Key West Literary Seminar is “Writers on Writing,” and financial assistance is available to teachers and librarians. Scholarships are also available to students and writers who would not otherwise be able to attend. “Writers on Writers” will be an opportunity to re-experience some of the world’s most enduring authors (think Thoreau, Dickinson, Hemingway, Melville, and Woolf) through the eyes of the contemporary writers who know them best (Geoff Dyer, Pico Iyer, and Colm Tóibín, among others).
“Writers on Writers” has now expanded to include two sessions. Session One will take place January 10-13, 2013. Session Two will take place the following weekend, January 17-20. The writers’ workshop program takes place in between the two seminar sessions, January 13-17. The seminar and workshops are independent of one another; you may attend both programs or choose between the two.
