TMWW – Summer Program

A Home for Writers of all Levels
a Virtual Experience: June 13-17, 2021

Due to current circumstances and the outlook for summer 2021, our 17th annual Tinker Mountain Writers’ Workshop will take place virtually, June 13-17, 2021. Join us this year in one of our intimate and inspiring workshops in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, or multi-genre.

Our manuscript workshops allow you to share work with colleagues and your faculty mentor in advance, and receive supportive and critical feedback during the week. If you don’t have a manuscript, or you’re looking to start new work, a write-now workshop is the perfect choice. This allows you to write each day and join fellow writers for both in-class writing exercises and sharing of work written during Tinker Mountain.

Whether taking part in a manuscript or write-now workshop, you can participate in craft talks, readings, and social sessions. You’ll have plenty of interaction with faculty, including a one-on-one session with your faculty mentor, and have the opportunity to network with other writers for ideas and support.

All sessions for the week will take place via the Zoom video conferencing platform. You do not need to have a Zoom account, and the only technical requirement is a device (computer, tablet, or phone) with good Wi-Fi.

An extraordinary experience. The campus was a spectacular place.

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!

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.
