Upcoming Programs

All programs are led by authors who are from the destination or have special knowledge or background related to the culture and literature. We also create opportunities for the group to meet local writers through readings or receptions, and attend festivals, book fairs or other events of interest. Itineraries range from 8 – 12 days depending on the length and distances for internal/inter-country travel involved. Whenever possible, we recommend an optional reading list in advance and/or provide access to the local contemporary literature at the destination itself. The program schedules always provide for “flex time” for writing, reading, one-on-one manuscript consultations, shopping and sightseeing, jet lag recovery, and independent sojourns to aid and abet discovery.

Authors-At-Large charges an overall program fee. In addition, there is a ground fee for all accommodation at the destination and for pre-arranged group transport. We endeavor to arrange modest but culturally interesting places to stay which are conducive to writing, provide best available access to internet connections (either in the room or facility itself or nearby at internet cafes, libraries, etc.) with space for informal group gathering and convenient to public transport. Writers are independent and private by nature, and we take this into account when organizing accommodations and therefore only offer single rooms. You are of course free to book your own hotel accommodation if you prefer and simply attend the program at the location for a pro-rated ground charge as appropriate. Authors at Large creates programs that allow writers to experience travel and culture that suit most writing habits and a range of interests and acculturation.

Participants must arrange their own transportation from their home to the program location. Local transport and food and drink are your responsibility, unless otherwise specified and covered in the program. Optional meals for local cuisine or special excursions are sometimes offered at an additional cost.

Please read the program terms & conditions for further information on registration, payments and refunds.
