Writers' Workshop Program: January 5-9, 2025

Our Writers’ Workshop Program provides writers at all stages of development with opportunities to explore the craft of writing. Every year we offer eight to ten workshops, each with its own focus and application requirements. Workshops meet in-person for three hours a day for four days. 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 at any level and require only a cover letter for consideration. The registration fee for all workshops is $675.

Note that the Workshop Program is separate and distinct from the Seminar. This year the workshops end at noon on Thursday, January 9. The Seminar kicks off that same day with an evening keynote address. You can therefore participate in a workshop and still attend the full Seminar if you wish. Alternately, to cap off the workshop experience, students may purchase a separate ticket for only the Seminar Keynote only.

Spaces are reserved in each workshop for fellowship recipients, who receive full fee waivers ($675 value) to the workshop of their choice, as well as financial assistance to offset lodging costs, 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.
