Aspen Words encourages writers, inspires readers, and connects people through the power of stories.
The summer workshops (June 19-26, 2016) are designed to accommodate both experienced, published writers and promising, emerging writers who have yet to publish their work. The majority of writing workshops are determined by a juried admission process that requires a manuscript submission; however, there is also a Beginning Writing workshop and a Readers' Retreat, which are non-juried and first-come, first-served.
