This year at IWOSC, we are exploring several different and creative ways to approach the process of writing fiction and nonfiction. Our seminar leaders are all experienced teachers who approach the creative process with a particular gift, and they are all eager to pass along the gift to you.
Your writing is a reflection of who you are and who you are becoming. – Hugh Leonard

- explore steps in releasing those resources for creativity and productivity.
