Five classes in fiction, memoir, nonfiction, poetry; five great instructors; and a week of focusing on your writing in the oldest city in Texas.

The 2018 Writers' League of Texas Summer Writing Workshop will be held July 29-August 3 in Nacagdoches, TX. The event includes five full days of classes (Monday through Friday, July 30-August 3) and several special evening events throughout the week, designed to showcase some of the great offerings and venues Nacogdoches.

Each registrant selects the class they'll participate in (students stay in the same class for the duration of the event), choosing from five topics all taught by experienced instructors with winning credentials. Each class is capped at 20 registrants allowing for an intimate classroom experience with plenty of opportunities for students to ask questions, receive specific feedback, form lasting connections with fellow participants, and more. The classes are open to writers of all genres and categories and are appropriate for both beginners and more seasoned writers.

Throughout the week, the Writers' League will host (or co-host with local partners) evening events open to all registrants. These offerings - including panel discussions, presentations, and readings - will take place at venues around town (and will include some special guests).


Featured Writers Include:

Christine Butterworth-McDermott (poetry), Charlotte Gullick (fiction), Donna M. Johnson and Kirk Wilson (memoir), Rachel Starnes (nonfiction), and Stacey Swann (fiction)
