July 19-22, 2012. Come to the highlands of the Appalachian Mountains for four days of workshops, panel discussions, readings and lectures.
The 2012 faculty are Stephen Amidon, Mark Brazaitis, James Harms, Renee Nicholson, Mary Ann Samyn, and Faith Shearin.
The West Virginia Writers’ Workshop features nationally respected authors alongside many of the region’s best known writers in a setting of rugged, natural beauty. West Virginia University’s striking campus provides a backdrop for creativity and complements the writing process: state forests are within a five-minute drive from campus and the Monongahela River within sight of it. All participants will meet individually with workshop faculty for intensive one-on-one conferences. These are intended to focus and refine the work being done around seminar tables and in classrooms. The Workshops themselves have limited enrollments to guarantee personal attention.
