Tinker Mountain Writers' Workshop

Since 2005, Tinker Mountain Writers has been nurturing and empowering a wide range of writers through workshops in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. We gather some of the best teachers of writing, who work alongside you to hone your craft and take your work to the next level. From novice to experienced, all levels are equally supported and challenged.

New for 2018, we have expanded our program to include multi-genre generative retreats. Spend the week with us and leave with a new manuscript or new ideas for your existing work.

Our writers return, year after year, to Tinker Mountain Writers to sharpen their writing tools and get their fix. Why don’t you join them and see how we can help you create something great?

Women Working with Clay Symposium

This symposium is about women who work with clay to create pottery, art vessels and sculpture, and whatever point of view may come with that distinction. With an emphasis on the creative process from every level, the symposium includes small group discussions, workshops, and demonstrations by a group of diverse and accomplished women artists. Attendees also have the opportunity to share images of their own work to promote a sense of sharing and community.
