The Algonkian Writer Retreat and Novel Workshop now includes new pre-event craft studies as well as a pre-event phone consultation, a broader range of faculty, new and vital workshops, as well as extended personal time with business professionals. It takes place at Algonkian Park in Virginia--a beautiful and rather enormous expanse of land beside the Potomac River. The scenery, the local wildlife and deer families, the walks along the river and hiking trails, all combine to provide you with an environment conducive to productive writing and soul searching. This place is where Algonkian Writer Conferences began, and it's our favorite place to be.

In keeping with the spirit of this place and the goals of this unique workshop retreat, you can be as goal-oriented or as hesitant in approach as you wish. You can show us your manuscript, improve your skills, have your work read by our writer mentors, attend our workshops, pitch a literary agent or two, whatever works for you, whatever helps you grow and discover your vision as a writer...

The 2017 New Worlds New Voices Novel Workshop taking place in Morro Bay, California this coming November is staffed and designed to enable new SFF writers to mature into commercial authors. A professional faculty and a range of advanced craft technique, along with pre-event forums and agent/editor pitch sessions, create a workshop event for SF and fantasy writers that is second to none.
