Sixteen Days to Go!

Elizabeth_Thorpe_5 Welcome to July! In sixteen days, the Port Townsend Writers’ Conference starts. Limited space is still available for our highly popular afternoon workshop series, and we’ve got a full lineup of readings and lectures that we’re proud to be able to present, for the fourth year in a row, free of charge, thanks to the generosity of Copper Canyon Press, Goddard College, and the Port Townsend Arts Commission.

Admission to afternoon workshops ranges from $50 to $275 for unlimited access. Admission to freewrites and morning writing exercises is $150 (you get both, all week!). All freewrites, morning writing exercises, and afternoon workshops are free for those who are registered for the core morning workshops. Room and board options range from $205 to $525. Financial-aid funds are available for all tracks.

In addition to the organizations named above, none of what we do here would be possible without the generous support of The Inland Center for Writers at Eastern Washington University, Western Washington University, the University of Washington, the University of Idaho, the Crab Creek Review, Willow Springs,, Port Book and News, the Rainier Writers’ Workshop at Pacific Lutheran University, and Peninsula College. We are grateful to all of these organizations, as well as to the thousands of individual donors and participants whose generosity celebrates the power of writing to change lives.

We’ll see you in sixteen days!
