2023 Summer Workshops
Please click here to be added to the waiting list
The most helpful writing workshops are ones in which the group acts as a single organism, its sole purpose being to help the piece of work at hand become its best possible self. Memoir, fiction—it’s all storytelling. Whether you’re bringing in pages of a memoir-in-progress or a work of fiction, we approach the page with an eye towards structure, character, voice, place, detail. Find the tenacity and take-no-prisoners courage to do your finest work.
Send no more than 12 pages of fiction or memoir (12 point font, double spaced) to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1.
