The writing workshops are full, of course, but the Key West Literary Seminar has added two sessions to "discuss the expanding boundaries of contemporary literature."
Now many of you would really rather just belly up to the bar and start ordering boat drinks than explore the myriad (excellent use of the word myriad) aspects of language and nuance, but aspiring writers with a little extra cash may feel differently. The sessions run Thursday through Sunday, Jan. 10-13 and Jan. 17-20, with presenters including new voices Junot Diaz, Nell Freudenberger, Uzodinma Iweala, Bich Minh Nguyen and Michael Thomas and established Key West presenters such as Ann Beattie, Judy Blume, Billy Collins, Annie Dillard, Mark Doty, Lee Smith and Edmund White.
Cost: $450 per session. You can pay for a lot of rum runners with that, but then your writing won't get any better, and that would be tragic.
