Workshop Focus:

This workshop is sold out, but we are accepting submissions for a waiting list. Please email [email protected] for more details.

In this intensive four-day workshop we will work on critiquing and revising your work to bring it to a more complete and polished form. We will read each other’s work in advance, and spend the mornings in critical discussions. It is not unusual for a work to be heavily revised as a result of workshop discussions. There are no limitations as to genre or subject matter.

Workshop Requirements:

This workshop is intended for advanced writers only. A submission of no more than 15 pages is required for consideration. Once your submission is reviewed, we will let you know your status. Please email your submission (word document as attachment) to: [email protected]

The cost is $450.00. To reserve your space, click here.

About our Program

The Key West Literary Seminar Writers’ Workshop Program provides writers at all stages of development with various opportunities to explore the craft of writing. Each workshop has its own focus and eligibility requirements; each class is limited to between 8 and 12 participants. Workshops generally take place in the morning, and may include optional afternoon and evening activities, including manuscript consultations, informal talks, and open readings. The Workshop Program is distinct from the Seminar; you may attend either or both. A $50 discount is available for most workshops, when taken in combination with the Seminar.

Our Scholarship & Financial Aid Program provides financial assistance to writers, teachers, and librarians who would otherwise not be able to attend the Seminar or Writers’ Workshop Program. For information about where to stay in Key West, see our guide to discounted lodging.
