Aspen Summer Words workshops are designed to accommodate both experienced, published writers and promising, emerging writers who have yet to publish their work. The majority of writing workshops are determined by a juried admission process that requires a manuscript submission; however, we also offer a Beginning Writing workshop and a Readers’ Retreat, which are non-juried and first-come, first-served.
June 18-23, 2017
$30 application fee and writing sample required. Carefully read all manuscript guidelines before applying.
