The Summer Fishtrap Gathering of Writers is held annually at Wallowa Lake in the heart of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. Each year, authors and instructors come to Wallowa County from around the country to provide intensive instruction and inspiration to a small group of writers. The conference features weeklong workshops in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, memoir, essay, and special workshops just for youth. Classes are limited to 13 students, giving each writer the chance to share their work in an intimate and supportive environment.
Take a weeklong writing workshop in your favorite genre: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, memoir, short story, or children’s literature. Each workshop is limited to no more than 13 participants, giving you the opportunity to build connections with a world-class instructor and your fellow writers. Throughout the week, we’ll bring the best of Summer Fishtrap to you through craft talks, discussions, open mics, readings, and a keynote address from Frank X Walker.
