Spend a week at the campus that the Princeton Review named "America's most beautiful." Our senior staff is here to talk with you about writing and the writing life, and to work with you on your fiction, poetry, novel, or memoir. Whether you are a veteran writer or a novice, we offer a range of consultations, workshops, craft talks, panel discussions, readings and informal conversations that will sustain your long-range efforts or help you get started.

Participant Comments:

"Very knowledgeable instructors, combined honesty with pleasant encouragement, [and were] generous with their time."

"You taught, guided, and encouraged us to be better writers. You did this with heart."

Manuscripts:

Each participant submits a manuscript to be discussed in the workshop. In addition, instructors schedule personal conferences concerning each participant's manuscript.

Shop Talks:

Agents, editors, and publishers share tips of the trade.

Craft Talks:

Each faculty member conducts a daily craft talk, which includes writing tips and discussion.

Workshops:

Workshops take place daily in small groups. Participant manuscripts are discussed, writing strategies practiced. Intensive workshops allow every participant to receive personalized instruction throughout the week.
