Each June, Sharon Dolin leads a small group workshop called Writing About Art in Barcelona.
This intensive workshop provides a small group of writers the opportunity to respond in poetry and prose to the rich cultural heritage of Barcelona.
The 2019 theme is the Jewish Culture and Heritage of Catalonia, with projected tours of the Jewish quarter (call) in Barcelona and Girona, a specially prepared Sephardic meal, Friday evening Shabbat services and dinner, as well as visits to the Picasso Museum, Miró Museum, Antoni Gaudí's Parc Güell, and one of Gaudí's houses.
Writers have the opportunity explore a very walkable city as well as free time to write.
This intimate workshop/tour is limited to 10 people.
