Dzanc Books/CNC DISQUIET International Literary Program in Lisbon, Portugal - June 30 - July 12, 2013
I can’t imagine anyone with an interest in writing or literature going through the Disquiet program and not being profoundly transformed – by the quality of the teaching, by the magic of Lisbon, and by the way the program is organized, which guarantees intellectual and cultural immersion to an extent unimaginable to the casual tourist. Disquiet is, to my way of thinking, the very best program of its type in the world: intense, humane, wildly energetic, with its heart in exactly the right place.
--George Saunders, DISQUIET 2012 Guest Writer
