under the volcano

I launched Under the Volcano in 2003 as a way to create a community of writers in Tepoztlán, the village in central Mexico where I have spent part of every year for most of my adult life.

Now in its sixteenth year, and structured as a non-profit that subsidizes more than half its participants, the program has blossomed into an international, bilingual week and residency that attracts accomplished poets, novelists, memoirists and journalists from Mexico, the US and around the world who converge every January in the village.

Our graduates continue to reap book contracts with such prestigious houses as Riverhead, Knopf and Counterpoint in the US, Weidenfeld and Nicolson in the UK and a number of small presses across Mexico.  Our younger writers are regularly accepted into top MFA programs, including Brown, Rutgers, the University of Texas at El Paso, Boston University and the University of East Anglia. 

Recent and upcoming faculty include Sandra Cisneros, Jennifer Clement, Francisco Cantú, David Huerta, Jonathan Levi, Paul Muldoon, Aysegúl Savas, Francisco Segovia, Owen Sheers, Ginger Thompson, Luisa Valenzuela, Alejandra Xanic and Alison Wearing.
