What We Do

We cultivate exceptional writing, thoughtful reading, and provocative discussion through an array of programs, including writing conferences, lectures, readings, discussions, and classes. Our flagship program is Summer Fishtrap: A Gathering of Writers. Held each July at Wallowa Lake in northeast Oregon, Summer Fishtrap gathers writers for a week of inspired writing workshops and culminates with a weekend of passionate discussion on a key issue facing the West.
