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.
