Writers of fiction, nonfiction and young adult fiction are invited to join us for a weekend of workshops, craft talks and readings.
Workshop with best-selling authors June 25-27.
Join best-selling authors Andre Dubus III, Nick Flynn and David Yoo for workshops in fiction, nonfiction and young adult writing. In addition to in-depth attention to your work, you'll have an immersive weekend of readings and craft discussions. You'll deepen your prose and leave with community, connection and inspiration. No matter what stage in your writing life, we're right there with you.
Space is limited to ensure personal attention and in-depth discussion of your work.
Best-selling author Ann Hood, founding director of the Newport MFA, is also director of the workshop. The workshop overlaps with the closing weekend of the Newport MFA's residency. Workshop participants get a peek inside our MFA program by attending craft talks and readings with MFA faculty and visiting writers.
Schedule and Registration
Separate workshop sessions for fiction, nonfiction and young adult run concurrently over three days. Each workshop is limited to eight students and application is open to all writers. While submission of a manuscript is not required at registration, you will be asked to submit a draft three weeks prior to attending the workshop.
Workshop participants will also join Newport MFA students for craft talks and readings (schedule to be announced at a later date).
