We're thrilled to partner with Atmalogy and poet Ciona Rouse in offering a special 6-day writing retreat in beautiful San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. 

San Miguel de Allende lies in the center of Mexico and is truly a beating heart of the country. A destination for writers for many years, San Miguel draws people passionate about beauty and inspires creation within them. Just one day in the city, and you’ll be elevated creatively by the enchanting doorways, colorful celebrations, charming parks and gardens, numerous art galleries, divine culinary offerings and, especially, the joyful humans who call it home. In this partnership with Atmalogy, we are excited to take you to this surreal destination that makes it “easy to smile,” as Mary Oliver says in her poem “First Day in San Miguel de Allende.” Every writer benefits by getting away from their norm, and we especially love getting away together.

Posada Corazón is an enchanting bed and breakfast in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. It is in a narrow valley, which makes its streets narrow and winding. Most are alleys that cars cannot pass through, and some are long sets of stairs up the mountainsides. Many of the city’s thoroughfares are partially or fully underground. The historic center has numerous small plazas, colonial-era mansions, churches, and civil constructions built using pink or green sandstone.
