Spend four days studying the craft concept of your choice —content, character, image, narrative— and write new material across an array of genres, or apply new knowledge to your existing drafts as you gain skills in class and write independently during “off” hours. Attend provocative presentations by the faculty, as well as faculty and participant readings. Enjoy lakeside lunches and spontaneous conversations around campus while making connections in the literary world that will last for years to come. 2018 Writers Retreat Course Descriptions: Click Here!
