Outside on Teton Valley Conservation Easement Properties throughout the summer
In partnership with Valley of the Tetons Library, we’re hosting three adult writing workshops and two writing camps for young authors. Discover different aspects of the craft of writing and explore your own personal and fictional narratives in summer workshops for adults and youth. Writers will have the opportunity to engage with established authors and connect with their fellow writers.
