The Gunnison Creative Writers Workshop offers valuable learning tools in an inspiring setting at the Campus of the Western State College, located in the beautiful Gunnison Valley of the central Colorado Rockies. The conference welcomes beginners, as well as published writers, and anyone else who believes in the magic and power of the written word.
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.
Workshop faculty members have a broad range of published works, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, screenwriting, and even 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. Earn college credit for attending the conference.
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 fine dining.
