Yaak, MontanaWriters' Workshop in Whitefish, Montana

Friday, May 5, 2017 - Sunday, May 7, 2017

You’re invited to a writers’ workshop with Rick Bass, May 5-7 in Whitefish, Montana.

This is a three-day, intensive workshop for up to eight writers who seek to improve their craft through a hands-on critical boot camp. Group sessions will include active workshopping and craft-focused discussion.

Over the weekend, we will examine the role of landscape and culture in fiction and nonfiction. How much is enough, how much is too little, how is much too much? We’ll discuss the work of students as well as advanced practitioners and, as always, support each other. Adverbs will be taxed hard. Rick will share a list of recommended reading and valuable insights from over 35 years of writing and teaching. This event also will also include a panel on publishing and a free-public reading by workshop participants at a local venue.


Cost is $1200; discounted lodging is available at Good Medicine Lodge in Whitefish, where the workshop will be held. If you have any questions, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
