Paisley Rekdal Workshop Now Full

Paisley Rekdal’s creative nonfiction workshop, happening July 17-24 as part of the 2011 Port Townsend Writers’ Conference, is now full.

Space remains in the Cate Marvin poetry workshop (two spaces) and the Bob Shacochis critiqued nonfiction workshop (four spaces).

Happening the week of July 17-24, the Conference has been since 1974 at the heart of the thriving Pacific  Northwest literary scene.

The workshops of Sam Ligon, Dorianne Laux, Pam Houston, Cheryl Strayed, Carl Phillips, and Benjamin Alire Sáenz are all full, with waiting lists started. More information and class options are available here.

You can also indulge yourself with the drop-in afternoon workshop series, residencies, guided freewrites, and a vibrant readings and lectures series. For some, the PTWC is an intense immersion in craft. For others, it’s about getting the time and space to write, while soaking in the readings and craft lectures, morning freewrites, and afternoon workshops. For all, it’s a time of retreat and renewal.

And, we’ve recently opened registration for our workshops, on the list to the right: both fiction and nonfiction workshops are now open for registration.
