Orion Environmental Writers' Workshop is an opportunity to connect with Orion writers and editors about nature writing and literature.

Join a community of writers, improve your craft, and reimagine how you think about nature.

Guided by award-winning instructors, the Orion Environmental Writers' Workshop provides an intimate space to connect with writers, artists, and editors, spark creativity, and renew, illuminate, and deepen your relationship with place. This workshop is cosponsored by the Omega Center for Sustainable Living.

Whether your passion is nonfiction, fiction, or poetry, the Orion Environmental Writers' Workshop is a creative laboratory for anyone seeking to reflect their environments through their work. The course features breakout sessions dedicated to intensive craft practice, faculty readings and lectures, student readings, and panels on publishing.

Each participant receives individualized attention, feedback, and focused time with faculty and Orion editors. Throughout the week, literary agents and editors will stop by for panels and conversations to answer questions and offer advice on bringing out your work in the publishing world.
