Writers Workshop in a Book

$14.95

Since 1969, the Community of Writers at Valley has helped develop the art and craft of many who are now household names. Instructors such as Michael Chabon, Mark Childress, Diane Johnson, Anne Lamott, Robert Stone, and Amy Tan have distilled their advice and wisdom from seminars and lectures, and the result is a book that captures the workshop experience of complete submersion in the writing process. With an introduction by novelist and short story master Richard Ford, himself a conference attendee in the 1970s, this volume gives the writer and dedicated reader a jolt of inspiration, sharp insight into matters of technique, and a feeling of camaraderie with a writing community.

The Squaw Valley Review

One of our most notable publications is The Squaw Valley Review, where alumni poets continue the tradition of publishing a collection of poems begun during the Poetry Workshop. Poets from the most recent workshop submit three poems, completely revised or exactly the same as the day the poem was first imagined. Volunteer alumni editors select the poems to appear in the Review. Proceeds benefit the Scholarship Fund, enabling talented poets to attend.
