Auditors TrackThis option
does not include participation in a workshop. It does include access to all craft talks, afternoon events, evening readings, and the three conference meals (see daily schedule for details). This option is for writers at any stage of development who work hard at their writing and want to better understand the creative act. You will be exposed to and benefit from the knowledge and experience our teaching artists share in their morning craft talks and be inspired by their work at the evening readings. Come be a part of the writers’ conference community. At $25 per night for convenient newly-remodeled campus housing, set aside the week for yourself as an incredibly affordable writer's retreat.

the creative act. A five to fifteen page writing sample in the genre
