Samizdat Creative at Writing the Rockies


by caleb j seeling

I’m excited to participate in this year’s Writing the Rockies festival. I’ll be on a publishing panel and also listening to pitches from authors and agents. I’m also planning to unveil some big news there, so stay tuned. If you’re in the Rocky Mountain region, I strongly recommend finding a way to come to this! Staying in Gunnison is fairly inexpensive, especially if you camp (which is probably what I’ll do).

Here’s the official pitch:

Beginners, published writers, and anyone else who believes in the magic and power of the written word are invited to attend.

Set in the beautiful Gunnison Valley of the central Colorado Rockies on the campus of Western State College, the workshop offers valuable learning tools in an inspiring setting.

Workshop faculty members have a broad range of published works, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, screenwriting, and magazine article writing. Working with participants of all levels, our featured faculty will help writers hone their craft through workshops and will mix with participants during events outside of formal sessions. Talk at leisure to our scheduled agents and book publishers, or sign up for pitches.

In cooperation with Western’s new low-residency MFA in Mainstream and Genre Fiction, Poetry, or Screenwriting.

Earn college credit. Contact Layne Nelson, Director of WSC’s Extended Studies Program at (970) 943-2885, or 1-800-876-5309, ext. 7.
