2017 Summer Writing Workshop

August 14-19, 2017

Austin, TX


Ever want to step away from the constant distractions of everyday life and spend a week with your fellow writers immersed in your craft and drawing inspiration from the literary community? Here's your chance.

Changes are afoot for the WLT's annual summer event, the Summer Writing Workshop. In 2017, we'll host this gathering in Austin for the first time. Think of it as a staycation if you live in town or a chance to experience the city's literary community firsthand if you're from outside ATX.

If you've been to the event in the past, rest assured that, while the location is changing for this year, it will be the same five classes (Fiction, Nonfiction, Memoir, Poetry, Revision), five great instructors, and six days full of daytime workshops & instruction followed by evening activities.

The dates: We'll kick off the event with an orientation meeting on Monday evening, August 14; classes will meet each day, Tuesday through Saturday, August 15-19.

Registration will open soon. Check back here for additional details.
