July 27-August 1 – All day – Contact: Josh Mullins

The Appalachian Writers’ Workshop at Hindman Settlement School is the mountain South’s premier literary gathering. This week-long residency welcomes published and unpublished writers alike, all learning alongside one another in a supportive environment guided by the region’s unique tradition. Here is an opportunity to study craft in structured workshops, attend special topic afternoon sessions, and enjoy captivating readings by our award-winning faculty. This historic gathering, now in its fourth decade, is known for providing rigorous instruction in a family-like atmosphere, where writers of place come together at the banks of Troublesome to meet a year-round community. Beginning, emerging, and established writers are all encouraged to apply.

Each evening will feature free public readings from faculty. Check back soon for the nightly schedule!
