Elk River Writer’s Workshop

The Elk River Writer’s Workshop brings together prominent writers and students for four days of seminars, workshops, lectures and readings in a small group environment. The 2016 workshop takes place August 8 – 11, at the historic Chico Hot Springs Resort in Montana’s spectacular Paradise Valley. Chico is tucked between the Absaroka Mountains and Yellowstone River, halfway between Yellowstone National Park and the literary and artistic community of Livingston, Montana.

Students who are accepted to the program may choose among workshop formats and faculty. This year, we are excited to welcome 2016 Henry David Thoreau award winner and Chicksaw poet Linda Hogan; bestselling novelist Jamie Ford; PEN Award winning author Nina McConigley and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Craig Lesley.

Our faculty members are outstanding in their fields, with vast and varied experiences in addition to their writing expertise. The small class size and intimate environment encourages the exchange of knowledge, inspiration and support from professional writers and fellow students. If you are passionate about writing and inspired by wild landscapes, the Elk River Writer’s Workshop is for you.
Elk River Writer’s Workshop is a production of Elk River Arts & Lectures and co-sponsored by Cutthroat: A Journal of the Arts.
