Full-Immersion in the Writing Life: The 2010 Port Townsend Writers’ Conference

P1010254 Although we're enjoying November-.jpgles of wet fall leaves, gray skies, firs leaning the wind, and cozy residency cabins where writers shut their windows against the rain–we're excited to be gearing up for the 2010 season. Registration is open for the 2010 Port Townsend Writers' Conference, with registration available here.

Morning workshop faculty members include fiction writer Chris Abani, nonfiction writer Denise Chávez, poet Martín Espada, poet Dana Levin, travel writer Tom Miller, nonfiction writer Bich Minh Nguyen (leading a master class), fiction writer Micheline Aharonian Marcom (read a brand-new interview here), and fiction writer Ana Menéndez.

For thirty-seven years, writers and aspiring writers have come to the Port Townsend Writers’ Conference to immerse themselves in the writing life.

There will be a lot going on during the July 18-25 week—including workshops, freewrites, readings, craft lectures, and other activities. But most importantly, the Conference offers writers the space and time toOutdoor Gathering think, write, and revise.

Whether you’re seeking to create or revise new work, find writing community, or simply desire a writing retreat in an inspirational location, the Port Townsend Writers’ Conference has been since 1974 at the heart of the thriving Pacific Northwest literary scene: a rigorous and invigorating community for writers, editors, thinkers, translators, and ardent readers.
