2017 Master Class Retreat

Master Class Retreats offer you an intensive learning experience with a small group of serious-minded writers committed to improving and deepening craft. The opportunity to work closely with an internationally-published author who is also an expert teacher provides you a foundational shift and leap forward in your writing.
This year, Wordcrafters offers Word Alchemy Lab, a deep dive into the wordsmithing that underpins all other aspects of writing. Sessions will focus on individual work and provide you with valuable feedback on your writing. Space will be limited to ten students.

We first met Arianne “Tex” Thompson at the 2016 Willamette Writers Conference and boy did she knock our socks off! Her hilarious, high-energy conference talks were nothing short of life changing, so we couldn’t wait to bring her back to Oregon for a master class.
