Come for an intimate writer’s retreat in the historic ghost town of Madrid, New Mexico.

Arrive Thursday in time for dinner and explore the mining museum of Madrid, check out the galleries and listen to local live music sitting on the patio at the cantina bar. Friday we start in earnest, sitting around the communal table in the studio in town.
