Writers’ Conference Poetry Workshops Now Full

Wheelertheater The poetry workshops at the Port Townsend Writers’ Conference are now full, and space is shrinking rapidly in the remaining fiction and nonfiction workshops. Chris Abani’s fiction workshop has only one space left, as well, with only a handful of spaces left in the nonfiction workshops of Selah Saterstrom and Lesley Hazleton.

For poets, there are still many options for enjoying a week of retreat and renewal during the Conference!

  • Sign up for the "Residency Only" option. You pay room and board, and then use your time to read and write, and can attend all readings and lectures for free.
  • Sign up for the "Afternoon Workshops" option. This gets you into all the afternoon workshops, including workshops with Copper Canyon poet Peter Pereira and Jeannine Hall Gailey.
  • Sign up for the Brian Evenson "Start Here" workshop, which is a foundational course in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction techniques. This class is appropriate for all writers–from beginners to those who are looking for new ways of thinking about their work and finding new ways of telling stories.
  • Or, to tailor a reading and writing experience that best fits your needs, call program manager Jordan Hartt at 360.385.3102, x131, and we will figure out how to maximize your time during the week!

Conference space at this point is 96% full, so make sure to reserve your space or put your name down on the waiting list!
