Eric Weiner is a journalist and author of The New York Times bestseller The Geography of Bliss. His most recent book, The Geography of Genius, has been called “smart, funny and utterly delightful” and has been translated into 20 languages. A number of high schools and universities have incorporated the book into their curricula. As a long-time foreign correspondent for National Public Radio, Weiner reported from more than 30 countries — from Iraq to India to Indonesia — covering some of the biggest stories of the day.
Eric will be teaching two writing workshops in fall 2019. One will be in Flagstaff, Arizona, Oct. 29 to Nov. 3 while the other will be in Nepal, November 10 to 20. Both promise to be incredibly rewarding experiences. They’re open to all writers, including aspiring ones.
