For over 25 years, our residential summer writing workshop has ranked among the finest in the country. Almost half of our attendees have been to Wildacres before. Published, unpublished and talented beginning writers are welcome at Wildacres Writing Workshop, but you must be a serious writer to attend.
These are residential "working" workshops where your manuscript is critiqued and given the attention it deserves. Class sizes are ten or less and leadership is at the Master Class level. All faculty members must meet strict requirements in terms of their education and teaching experience.
Classes offered for 2013 include novel, short story, poetry, and creative nonfiction. Total cost, including meals and double occupancy accommodations, is $690. (We do not have private rooms.) Dates for the 2013 workshop: July 6 - July 13.
A writer's retreat is also available for those attending the writing workshop. Total cost for both sessions is $1,060. Dates for both sessions are June 30 - July 13.
Because our fee is inexpensive, newcomers are often concerned about the quality of the facility and the writing workshops. Don't be! The beautiful lodge-type buildings blend the comfort of modern living with the beauty of North Carolina's Blue Ridge mountains. Our workshop costs less because Wildacres Retreat Center is a non-profit and does not allow for-profit organizations to use their facility. Accordingly, Wildacres Writing Workshop is operated on a not-for-profit basis.
We invite you to consider our writers retreat and our summer writing workshop. The serenity of the location is unparalleled. Apply early so you won't miss out!
As a smart alumni, Debbie Daniel, once said, "When you apply for Wildacres, don't worry about the class. Just get in! Don't miss the experience."
