PLEASE NOTE: We will announce 2024 faculty in the spring, and workshops will run from Sunday, January 7 – Thursday, January 11, 2024.

Our Writers’ Workshop Program provides writers at all stages of development with opportunities to explore the craft of writing. Every year we run 8 – 10 workshops; each has its own focus and application requirements, and meets in-class once a day for three hours. Enrollment is typically limited to twelve participants per workshop to ensure individual attention.

“Advanced” workshops require a writing sample as part of the application; “All Levels” workshops are open to writers of all levels, and require only a cover letter for consideration. The registration fee for all workshops is $675.

On the first day, students attend registration to pick up their workshop packets and meet staff. In-class workshops begin the next morning, and run for four days from 9 am – 12 pm (in various locations in Old Town). Students and faculty attend a Welcome Dinner on the evening of the first workshop day.

Note that the Workshop Program is separate and distinct from the Seminar. The workshops end on the morning of the day the Seminar begins (it kicks off with an evening Keynote address). This means that workshop students can easily attend both programs in full, if they wish. Alternately, to cap off their workshop experience students may purchase a separate ticket for the Seminar Keynote, at a reduced rate.

Spaces are reserved in each workshop for fellowship recipients, who receive funding to eliminate the cost of registration, and to provide lodging support as needed. If you would like to apply for a fellowship and your preferred workshop is listed as full, please do not be deterred. Apply for a workshop fellowship (currently closed).
