Week long workshop. Small classes, reading, in-class critiques, manuscript reviews, individual conferences and more.

For ten years, the Tinker Mountain Writers’ Workshop has hosted a marvelous experience each summer. We gather some of the best writers -- and teachers of writing -- in the country to mentor small week-long workshops of thoughtful and intelligent adult students dedicated to honing their craft and taking their work to the next level.

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountain, you’ll be surrounded by peace, beauty, and inspiration as you discover your full potential as a creative writer. Choose from twelve workshops in fiction, memoir, personal essay, travel, screenwriting and poetry – led by a remarkable talented faculty. With class sizes of no more than 12 students, you’ll benefit from one-on-one interaction with your workshop leader along with in-depth class discussions. You can expect faculty and student readings, manuscript reviews, craft seminars, and a variety of other activities.

You might come out your workshop with a manuscript ready for publication or a new understanding of the writing you want to do, but you will always leave Tinker Mountain feeling revitalized and inspired and ever more committed to the craft of writing.
