A Home for Writers of All Levels - Offering a Virtual Workshop Experience!

Fuel your passion and transform your writing during your one-week virtual experience in June. Choose from manuscript review or write-now workshops with our acclaimed Tinker Mountain faculty. This is your opportunity to recharge your creativity, connect with the Tinker Mountain community of writers, and reframe your work.

Manuscript workshops give you an opportunity to receive feedback on your work from peers and your faculty mentor and learn what other writers are working on.

Write-now workshops allow you to immerse yourself in the craft of writing and generate new work without the pressure of preparing or reading manuscripts.

Craft seminars, readings, and social events are all part of the virtual experience. You’ll have plenty of interaction with faculty, including a one on one session, and the opportunity to network with other writers for ideas and support.

The depth of warmth, personality and kindness in our community of writers contributes to making this the kind of experience that all of us can value and find truly sustaining. We hope that you will join us online in June!
