2014 The Sandy Writing Contest
December 1 - February 11, 2014

Welcome to the Crested Butte Writers Conference, a gathering of passionate writers from around the world. While our focus is primarily on writing, we also believe that immersing ourselves in new experiences and exploring different cultures can greatly enrich our creative endeavors. In that spirit, we invite you to embark on a journey of discovery with these travel guides:

Travel Guides:

Barcelona, a vibrant city in Spain, is renowned for its stunning architecture, rich history, and vibrant culture. Discover the awe-inspiring Sagrada Familia and indulge in delicious tapas while strolling through the bustling streets.

Next on our list is Bilbao, a city that harmoniously blends tradition and modernity. Visit the iconic Guggenheim Museum, explore the charming Old Town, and savor the delectable Basque cuisine.

If you're seeking a sun-soaked getaway, Ibiza is the place to be. Experience the vibrant nightlife, relax on pristine beaches, and soak up the Mediterranean vibes. From beach clubs to breathtaking sunsets, Ibiza offers a perfect escape.

For a taste of coastal beauty, venture to La Coruña. With its picturesque harbor, historic lighthouse, and charming old town, this city in northwest Spain is a hidden gem waiting to be explored.

As writers, we understand the importance of stepping outside our comfort zones and embracing new experiences. Traveling allows us to broaden our perspectives, immerse ourselves in different cultures, and find inspiration in the world around us. So, while we take a break from the Crested Butte Writers Conference to focus on our own writing, we encourage you to embark on your own adventures.

Happy travels, and may your journeys be filled with inspiration!
