“Gorgeous setting, inspiring place to work and learn! My workshop leader was amazing, a fabulous teacher as well as an inspiring writer.”

~2022 workshop participant

Each morning workshop in poetry, fiction, or nonfiction, is limited to ten students and meant to provide a personal experience with award-winning faculty, while also allowing you to build relationships with other writers. These workshops will be augmented by craft talks, student readings, panel discussions, lectures by guest speakers. The event concludes with our annual Gala, a celebration of the arts open to community members with music, hearty appetizers, and silent and live auctions.

Please note: Applications for the 2024 workshop open on Oct. 1, 2023. More info coming soon.
