Getting ready for the Wellspring Writing Workshop

By  |  3 Comments

Wellspring is a workshop that I'm running this year in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Lake Geneva is a little resort town near the Illinois border that has a beautiful, spring-fed lake. I'm about ready to head out the door to pick up the first out-of-towner, Vincent Jorgensen. We're have a few other "locals" from Chicago and a number of others flying or driving in for one week of writing, commiserating, and soul-bearing critiquing.

The list of attendees are:


If you're wondering, we modeled the workshop on the Blue Heaven design, started by Charles Coleman Finlay, which you can read about in detail here. The workshop design is simple and easy to reproduce, so if you're hankering for a workshop of your own, I highly recommend it. I think the peer-to-peer style is very valuable. If you're interested in it, and you ever have any questions about running one, drop me a line.

In the meantime, it's off to pick up Vince I go…
