Summer Writing Retreat


Every year, we host a workshop that brings between 80 and 100 writers to a tranquil location in Texas -- be that Alpine or Nacogdoches; East or West Texas or someplace in the middle. If you've ever wanted 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, this is your chance.

The 2019 Summer Writing Retreat is on!  We'll be at Schreiner University in Kerrville, TX, in the heart of Hill Country, from Sunday, July 14 through Friday, July 19, 2019. For more information on the classes being offered, housing, and registration on the links in the sidebar to the left.

At this time, class registration for the 2019 Summer Writing Retreat is closed. There are still spots available for the Write Away option (no campus housing) until close of check-in at 5pm on Sunday, July 14. If you'd like to register for the Write Away, contact Becka Oliver at 


And consider signing up for our newsletter to receive announcements on this event and future programs.
