Readings: All faculty, guests, Tedi Lopez Mills, Pedro Serrano, Victor Teran (Zapotec language), Efrain Velasco and open mics for participants!

Testimonials

"Somehow this program fosters almost instant camaraderie among writers of diverse backgrounds and balances time for writing, exploring, and workshopping so you can take advantage of all [Mérida] has to offer."

"USPiM not only allowed me to work with one of my favorite poets for a week, it offered me a community in which I, and my non-poet husband, immediately felt welcome—something that travelers don’t always have. "

"US Poets in Mexico was amazing. Not only were the poetry workshop leaders and speakers outstanding and accessible, the participants were dedicated poets—many of them published writers and MFA candidates—open to new ideas and cultural exchange. The spirit of the workshop was collaborative, supportive, and stimulating."

Excursions

Monte Alban ($20) and The Road to Tlacolula Market ($30).
