Port Townsend is an inspirational place to write and a relaxing place to visit. Come join like-minded individuals in a lovely Victorian seaport where daylight lingers till nearly 10 pm. Our program of lectures, panels, brown bag lunch presentations, small-group discussions, manuscript workshops and in-class writing exercises will guide you to deeper and more meaningful writing. We have three poets on staff who work in prose as well as poetry: Susan Rich, Meg Files and Sheila Bender. All of our lectures and exercises will help you write stronger poems as well as lyric narrative.
Includes a tour and reception at Copper Canyon Press.
Since 1999, our faculty's trademark has been enthusiasm, warmth and genuine down-to-earth instruction in lectures and small-group instruction. Check out our conference highlights
