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.


This workshop is intended for advanced writers. Admission will be based on a writing sample. To be considered, submit a work sample of no more than 15 pages as a single word document to miles[at]kwls[dot]org with “Stone Workshop Submission” in the subject heading.
