I have just joined the faculty of DISQUIET: Dzanc Books International Literary Program in Lisbon. ILP has two primary components: 1) Two-week workshops in Poetry, Fiction, Nonfiction, and Photography and Visual Storytelling. 2) A Literary and Cultural program featuring contemporary Portuguese writers, lecturers, and thinkers as well as other events such as literary walks, film screenings, and excursions.
The ILP programming will take place at venues throughout Lisbon, which is easily and cheaply navigable by subway, streetcar, and bus, including the Center for National Culture, NOVA the New University, the University of Lisbon, the American Embassy, at the headquarters for the Luso-American Development Foundation and others.
And did I mention that the beaches are FABULOUS?
