Once you’ve traveled to the Philippines, you’ll almost certainly fall in love with the country and wonder why it’s so far off the beaten path. In the Philippines, English is widely spoken, the people are friendly, and the scenery is spectacular. The fact that the Philippines is underappreciated by tourists and misrepresented by the media is the Philippines’ misfortune and your good luck. A rich literary tradition (the national hero, Jose Rizal, was a martyred novelist) makes it the perfect destination for Authors At Large, but this only for the hardy traveler, not the tourist who expects to be pampered and requires an efficient and smooth tourist infrastructure. Flexibility and patience are the watchwords here.

The following program is preliminary and subject to change, but is a reasonable representation of the schedule of events. Internal transportation within the Philippines (unless otherwise noted, or travel separate from the group) is included in the ground fee as well as some meals (noted in schedule). Accommodations, also included in ground fee, will be clean but fairly basic, for the most part. Visits to museums or other institutions, public transport, lunches and dinners are not included except where specified in the program.

Program: $1350.00
Ground: $1050.00
Manuscript Consultation: $400.00
