Writing the Rockies

July 2016• Gunnison, Colorado

Set in the beautiful Gunnison Valley of the central Colorado Rockies on the campus of Western State Colorado University, Writing the Rockies is one of the strongest creative writing conferences in the west.

New for 2016 are greatly expanded offerings in poetry, including more workshops, critical seminars, and our ongoing Symposium in Poetry Criticism. Also new is access to a state-of-the-art movie theater for screenings on campus.

We offer morning and afternoon concurrent tracks in genre fiction, poetry, publishing and screenwriting. Attendees can concentrate on a single track of interest during the course of the conference, or combine sessions. All tracks include not only workshops but also keynotes and other events.

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

Faculty have national reputations,

Gunnison Country is one of the most beautiful high alpine valleys in the 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.
