What Scriptoria Offers

Modeled after MFA residencies, Scriptoria is a week-long writing workshop that encourages growth in writing craft, community, and soul-care.  

The week features:


A valuable part of Scriptoria is your participation in receiving and giving comments on works-in-progress.
This is the actual workshop. 

How It Works

Participants will be assigned to a workshop class based on genre, and the classes will run daily from
9 am to 11 am —except Monday, which starts at 9:30 am. Scriptoria faculty will lead the groups and will contact their assigned participants with precisely how they’ll run the workshop. 

Workshops are an excellent way to get helpful feedback on your writing. Your facilitator and classmates will talk about what works well and where they see growing edges. Each participant will have a turn.
(Note: Being nervous is human. You’ll be in good company.)


Please ready the following amount of writing, depending on your genre:

· Fiction Writers: Up to 15 pages, double-spaced. This may be chapters of one work or short stories.

· Nonfiction Writers: Up to 15 pages, double-spaced. This may be chapters or separate essays.

· Poetry Writers: Up to 8 poems. 

Compile your submission as a WORD document, with your name and page numbers on every page. (Using Word allows us to use Comments, Track changes, etc., in the review process.)

NOTE: Participants who register shortly before or later than May 20 are not too late!
