Dream Spinning: Ajijic Writers Conference

By Kay Davis

 

Cai-EmmonsAttention: retirees. Have you had a dream about writing? If you have wanted to write family memoirs, the great novel, short fiction, humor, travel stories, or Mexican history, you will be happy to learn about the Ajijic Writers Conference from January 20-22.

Featured are two talented and published speakers, Cai Emmons and Marc Acito. The conference begins with cocktails Wednesday, January 20 at 6 p.m. You will meet the speakers and other attendees. Thursday morning from 9-12, Marc will speak on injecting creativity to boost the impact. After lunch Cai will talk on Finding the Form for essays, articles and others, sometimes an awkward process. Friday morning Cai will start the day with Self Editing, an important function when you want anyone to read what you’ve written, and the afternoon will wrap up with Marc’s guidance on how to turn rejection slips into success.

The fee is $1150 pesos, about $90 USD, and that includes lunches, coffee and soft drinks. The conference will be held at beautiful Hotel Real de Chapala in La Floresta, Ajijic.

You may also want to attend the Writers Group at La Nueva Posada on the first and third Fridays of each month at 10 a.m. to meet local writers and to read something you have written for critique. Critiques are aimed at potential improvement in the writing material. Friendships often develop.
