SLS, a non-profit org based in Brooklyn & Montreal, has been offering workshops in Russia & Kenya for years. Now it has two new locations ie Italy and Lithuania. Its Board of Directors and the writers heading the workshops, as well as participants, are truly international, and Vasto, Italy, is the perfect spot as it's best known for being the birthplace of the Rossetti, famous British Pre-Raphaelite poets & painters whose father was born in Vasto, then emigrated to London, hence the perfect symbiosis of cultures/cross-cultures and pollination; also known for its beaches, and historic centre, founded by Diomedes, the wanderer/warrior after Troy.
