Project Description

In response to requests from teachers who have participated in IWT workshops and now want to give time to their own writing in a congenial environment, we offer this workshop. Working independently, with partners, or in writing groups on fiction, nonfiction, or poetry, participants have an opportunity to write, read, and reflect in beautiful surroundings. The community of writers supports the continuation of works in progress and the generation of ideas for new works. Institute faculty form the writing community on the first day of the retreat, lead special workshops, and act as a resource for individual participants. Evening readings by participants and guests provide further enrichment. Previous participation in Writing and Thinking or Writing to Learn is a prerequisite.
