Attn: Writers-- Come to Oregon! Fishtrap Summer Gathering & Writing Workshops

Coming July 10-17th! Fishtrap’s 24th Summer Writing Workshops and
Gathering at Wallowa Lake, nestled at the foot of the Wallowa
Mountains in Eastern Oregon. Writers are invited to join us for a week
of creative writing workshops and a weekend of presentations and
conversation on questions of migration and transformation, both
political and personal.

There are a few spaces left in writing workshops by Wayne Harrison on
the subtler uses of dialog to reveal character, Debra Earling on
creating stories of legend, myth and magic, Henry Hughes on writing
poems that move, Rosanne Parry on writing young adult fiction, and
Joanne Mulcahy on writing about the landscapes and lives of others.

The Gathering begins on Thursday night July 14th and features Pico
Iyer, famous for his writings on travel, globalism, migration and
crossing cultures. Iyer will be joined by artist and healer Eva
Castellanoz, journalist David Laskin, and social activist Pramila

Participants may enroll in the five-day writing workshops, just the
Gathering, or both . For more information and to register go to


  1. Looks like an awesome line-up. I've always wanted to go. This year won't work for me, but maybe next?

  2. Will be there this summer as a fellow! Have you been before? Any advice for a newbie?

  3. Luke,

    I've never been, but my friend Anne is now the director (I believe) of it. I've only heard good things. I'd love to hear what you thought when you return.

  4. Welcome, Luke. Can't wait to meet you. Yes, Kelli, you got it right. I am the incoming Executive Director of Fishtrap -- moving to Joseph in August!
