For more than 40 years the Community of Writers has been a place where writers and the publishing industry come together. Many of today’s best writers first developed their work and encountered publishing professionals at our famous summer workshops in the High Sierra – among them Michael Chabon, Amy Tan, Alice Sebold, Jennifer Egan, Janet Fitch, Glen David Gold, Jamie Ford, Aimee Bender, Joshua Ferris, and Anne Rice. We provide a genuine practical learning experience for a diverse population of qualified participants, as well as engaging our local and national communities in relevant conversations on the craft of writing, publishing, and the life of the writer.
We depend on the generosity of friends, former participants and staff to fund the scholarship and tuition waivers we grant to our talented participants. Donations of any amount are appreciated.
Please give today.
