Fall Creative and Writing Festivals - Ghost Ranch Art Workshops

Posted Aug 22, 2016

Express your true nature at Ghost Ranch this October at the Fall Creative and Writing Festivals. Every Fall, Ghost Ranch celebrates this invigorating time of year with workshops dedicated to the literary arts and evoking creativity in a number of art mediums.

Fall Writing Festival, October 2-8, 2016
This festival began in 1997 offering workshops in a variety of literary genres. Workshop groups are small, typically seven to twelve people. Classes meet for three morning hours, with the afternoon and evenings free to explore the outdoors or attend optional lectures, panels, and readings. Nationally acclaimed instructors each bring years of experience mentoring both beginning and established writers—and a willingness to meet with students one-on-one.
