The (Almost) August Occasion

The third edition of our popular August Occasion writers’ weekend will feature two days of intense small-group writing workshops in fiction and poetry; readings by faculty, students, and a mystery guest; and plenty of food, drink and comradery. This year, it will all happen at our new location, Harding Farm in Clinton, NY (not quite an hour East of Syracuse).

Our faculty will be familiar to anyone who has taken classes at the DWC: Philip Memmer, Jennifer Pashley, Sarah Freligh, and recent DWC visiting author Jane Springer. What will be different is the overall experience… we’ll have time to be social, enjoy each other’s company, share some great meals together, and more. Plus, we’ll also be joined for a reading on the last day by a special Mystery Guest… because really, who doesn’t like surprises?

Summer can be a busy time, so we have a variety of program options available this year. You can join us for the full weekend, including sleeping quarters and meals, or you can join us for just the day-time activities. And if your schedule is really swamped, you can also take the Saturday-only program. Whichever you choose, we think you’ll have a fun, relaxing, and inspiring time.
