Take a class with Cheryl

June 24-29th, 2018

Location: Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California
Workshop title: Writers' Camp

Writers take over the entire Esalen campus during this annual workshop organized by Cheryl Strayed. In sessions led by each of the six distinguished faculty members (Cheryl plus five others, TBA), you’ll hear lectures, do writing exercises, discuss the art and craft of creative writing, and have the opportunity to share your work in a nurturing environment that engages and challenges writers of all levels, from the novice to the advanced. Because the focus of the workshop is on generating new writing rather than critiquing manuscripts, you simply begin where you are. You can be a published writer or someone who has never written much at all. This is a fun, creative, inspiring week designed to ignite and re-ignite your passion for the stories you have to tell. Many people return year after year.

All students will be taught by each of the faculty members over the course of the camp. There will also be time to soak in the hot springs, hike, get massages, read books, watch the sun rise/​set and relax beneath the stars.

All meals and housing (of various types/​at a range of prices) are included with the fee.
Childcare may be available on site for children under of the age of 8 for an additional fee (see Esalen web site for information about the Gazebo School).

Registration and details at the link below. UPDATE: This workshop is SOLD OUT.
