The Workshop Program officially begins on Monday evening with an orientation dinner. Workshop classes begin Tuesday morning and take place each day through the final class on Friday (four days of classes). All workshops meet for three hours a day (generally 10:00 am – 1:00 pm). Most (but not all) workshops will require some advance reading and/or a manuscript submission.
For the daily workshop sessions, participants are in a classroom with the instructor and eleven fellow students. Afternoon and evening events offer an opportunity to connect with the larger group of workshop participants (100-120 people). These include: evening programs featuring lectures and presentations by faculty members; opportunities to go sailing with fellow workshop participants; and a final reception. The sailing opportunity requires an additional fee; all other events mentioned here are included in your workshop fee.
In addition, our Writer’s Toolkit program addresses the practicalities of publishing and promotion in today’s marketplace. These afternoon sessions are available for an additional fee and are limited to sixteen participants per session. Details will be announced in the fall.
