Dates for next year: June 8-11, 2020 - Registration scheduled to open by January 1st. The 14th Annual Writers Retreat offers a choice of four courses, each grounded in different craft concepts, across genres, with an emphasis on generating new work, and appealing to advanced and beginning writers alike. Spend four days studying the craft concept of your choice —plot, people and places, family history, getting your story on the page— and write new material across an array of genres, or apply new knowledge to your existing drafts as you gain skills in the classroom and write independently during “off” hours. Attend provocative presentations by the faculty, as well as readings by faculty and participants. Enjoy lakeside lunches and spontaneous conversations around campus while making connections in the literary world that will last for years to come. 2019 Writers Retreat Course Descriptions - Click Here!
