Yearlong Writers Workshop

Applications for the 2018-19 Yearlong Workshop open November 8.

I’ve had many writing teachers over the course of my career … but I’ve never learned as much about the craft from anyone … I have never been more inspired. Never trusted myself more. Never felt more supported and understood.
— Ann Eisenberg, past workshop participant
Fishtrap’s Yearlong Workshop is a 13-month intensive writing program modeled after low-residency MFA programs, with short, intense group sessions framing a year of long-distance instruction – offered at about half the cost of most low-residency MFA programs. If you don’t need a degree, but just want high-quality, sustained support and instruction for your writing, this program could be the perfect fit for you.  The Yearlong program begins and ends with attendance at Summer Fishtrap where students and faculty meet as a group for  morning workshops. During the year, participants work closely with their instructor, exchanging monthly packets of writing. With each packet the writer moves toward the development of a full-length manuscript with a goal of having a complete draft by the end of the course.
