A Home for Writers of All Levels

Since 2005, Tinker Mountain Writers Workshops have nurtured and empowered writers of all ability levels. Over 750 writers have participated through manuscript reviews and “write now workshops” in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Spend time with us and leave with a new manuscript, or with new ideas for your existing work.

We offer our week-long residential Summer Workshop and a three-day online Winter Workshop. You can participate and learn in the format that works best for you!

Over 20% of our participants have attended Tinker Mountain Writers more than once. Why don’t you join them and see how we can help you create something great?

“I never expected to find such a supportive community for my burgeoning work. There was a perfect balance of constructive criticism and encouragement. I learned so much and my craft was nurtured this week. Can’t wait to return!”

“An extraordinary experience. The campus was a spectacular place.”

“Part of the magic of this conference is the magical, beautiful setting at Hollins.”

“Always an opportunity to grow in craft and nurture contacts with other writers. An amazing experience and supportive environment. People return again and again because they get a quality experience.”
