Syllabus & Flyer
Imagine the shimmering of hills
like white elephants in the distance, Flamenco music, the jazz of Miles Davis,
as you sit in a café to sketch out your sense of place and self-discovery in
Spain. From Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona to Madrid’s Plaza
Mayor and buzzing street life scene, these Spanish cityscapes become your
canvass to evoke place in only the way prose can. To further ground us in craft
and technique, we also study writers leaving their own indelible portraits of
Spain in print, to include Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos, Martha Gellhorn,
George Orwell, Richard Wright, and Miguel Delibes.
