Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- Literary Seminar

Song of the Day: What A Feeling by Irene Cara 

   I'm in a fantastic mood today, and this song just says it all! "Take your passion and make it happen!" As you all know, I am a huge follower of Narrative Magazine. I was on their site when I stumbled across this seminar. I think I'll try and go. What could be more fun than 7 days centered on my most favorite thing in the World? I'm referring to writing by the way, though food does come in at a close second place. Check it out:

             The Hungry Muse
                 An Exploration of Food and Literature
                 The 29th annual Key West Literary Seminar

Here is what the website listed for the description:

"Each year in January, the Key West Literary Seminar explores a different literary theme, bringing acclaimed writers and readers from all over the world together in this historic island city. Four days of readings, conversations, lectures, panel discussions, and parties add up to an event that is one of today's smartest and most high-spirited literary gatherings.

This year, for the first time, we explore food in literature. The Hungry Muse will present dozens of today’s most compelling, thought-provoking, and funniest writers– memoirists, novelists, poets, historians, journalists, and all manner of lettered gastronome, gourmand, and epicure. It promises to be a mouthwatering and fascinating investigation not simply of the stuff we eat, but of all the things food stands for in our thoughts and words and stories."

     The seminar features two seminar sessions with or without a workshop session. You will have to pay extra for the workshop if you are interested in that. Admission to the seminar costs $495 (includes all literary events at the San Carlos Institute, as well as social events at various venues) and admission to the workshop costs $400-$450.

     It all sounds like a lot, but fear not! They have financial assistance. You can apply for three Fiction Awards that will cover full tuition, round-trip airfare, seven nights lodging, support for living expenses while in Key West, and the opportunity to appear onstage during the Seminar! If you get one of these awards you are pretty much set! They also offer partial Financial Assistance to teachers, librarians, students, and writers. Please note that they do have requirements and it is a process.
