Writing the Rockies

July 2014 • Gunnison, Colorado

Set in the beautiful Gunnison Valley of the central Colorado Rockies on the campus of Western State Colorado University, the Gunnison Creative Writers Workshop offers valuable learning tools in an inspiring setting.

Two-hour morning and afternoon concurrent tracks are scheduled in: mainstream (narrative nonfiction)/genre fiction, poetry, and screenwriting. Attendees can concentrate on a single track of interest during the course of the conference, or "mix and match" sessions as desired. A keynote address devoted to one of the three tracks precedes each session.

Other activities include panel discussions, readings by nationally acclaimed authors, screenings, one-on-one pitch and manuscript critique sessions, and open mic for attendees.

Workshop faculty members have a broad range of published works, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, screenwriting, and magazine article writing. Working with participants of all levels, our featured faculty will help writers hone their craft through lectures and will mix with participants during events outside of workshop sessions. Attendees can talk at leisure to agents and book publishers or sign up for pitches.

Gunnison Country recreational activities include hiking, fishing, biking, kayaking, and climbing. Thirty minutes away, the ski resort town of Crested Butte offers outdoor and cultural events as well as shopping and dining.
