The Ventana Sierra Writing Workshop is a new annual summer event with two tracks:
- A three-day advanced writing workshop for advanced writers (Friday, 14th June, Saturday, 15th June, and Sunday, 16th June)
- A free one-day workshop for young writers up to the age of 18, inclusive. (Saturday, 15th June)
Both tracks may request a manuscript evaluation for an additional $100 at the time of registration while places last, which will automatically be entered for the Ventana Sierra Young Writers Award and the Ventana Sierra Advanced Writer Award, voted on by the faculty.
Hotel and transportation are not included in the registration fee, but we have reserved a block of rooms at local hotels. See our website for details at: http://ventanasierraworkshops.com/hotel
The closest airport is Reno International. All proceeds benefit Ventana Sierra, a nonprofit founded by author Ellen Hopkins to help youth-in-need into safe housing and working toward career goals through higher education, apprenticeships and the arts.
