Writeaway in New Mexico

Adobe home in New Mexico with blue sky

Our Spring Writeaway in New Mexico is designed to take advantage of the best season in the Southwest. With seven nights in a stunning adobe home, six quiet retreat mornings to focus on your writing, six afternoon workshops, lovely writing nooks throughout the house, private consultations whenever you need them, all meals (including daily cocktails and wine), and a Southwestern cooking class complete with sangria, your writing will thrive in an enchanted landscape.

“Mimi and John are keen, uncompromising teachers and editors, always asking the perfect “what ifs” at the exact right moment. And the food – gourmet dinners of gorgeousness, full of wine + laughter + creative camaraderie. What a pure gift of a week. I’m leaving here with an entirely new toolbox – not just a few new tricks – and an extended writing family. Leaving today is bittersweet, but I have a feeling many of us will find our way back to New Mexico again.”   
— Jenn, Stillwater, Minnesota

The Writeaway in New Mexico takes place at Casa Bellissima in Tesuque Village, just outside of Santa Fe, on the edge of a national forest. Convenient to Santa Fe and Albuquerque airports. this location offers opportunites for stunning hikes in the desert, evenings under the stars and skies that go on forever.

For over a decade Writeaways have provided rigorous attention to craft for all genres and writing levels, individual consultations, and a lively community to help writers thrive and inspire them to create their best work.
