OWC workshops offer unparalleled opportunities for both advanced and novice writers to learn from and connect with experts in the craft. Some of our prior workshops have included such teachers as Jean Auel, Robert Dugoni, Jennie Shortridge, Hallie Ephron, Shannon Applegate, Mark Acito, M.K. Wren, and Larry Brooks.

These workshops tend to be small and interactive, with plenty of opportunity to ask follow-up questions of the presenter and to learn from your fellow participants.

As a member of Oregon Writers Colony, you get to pay the members’ price, and your subscription to the OWC newsletter tells you about upcoming workshops so that you can learn from the best in their discipline. Join or renew now.

About the Workshop/Conference Committee

The Oregon Writers Colony Workshop/Conference Committee was formed to support and educate aspiring and experienced writers in their quest for improved craft and artistry. OWC presents financially accessible workshops of high quality. OWC also strives to help all writers learn about the changing world of publication and how to sell themselves and their work. Our workshops and conferences promote camaraderie among writers and help you meet kindred souls.

Knowledge, experience and presentation skills are considered when we seek instructors, and we keep workshops manageable in size, striving for affordability, to give you the best possible learning experience for your money.

We cordially invite you to join our sessions. Visit our website, newsletter and OWC eBlast to stay current on what’s being presented. Members and non-members alike are welcome to participate. If you have questions, suggestions, or concerns, please contact Marlene Howard.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
