WRW 2014 was an inspiring, brilliant event. The staff was giving, participants worked hard and were equally giving. Our final night, beside a campfire (burning some dead pages), the week was complete.
We hope you can join us for our offerings in the upcoming years.
WRW 2015 was a smashing success. Our eight days in San Antonio featured NYC Literary Agent and WRW friend Donald Maass, Author and Dark House Press Editor-in-Chief Richard Thomas, Author and Instructor Les Edgerton, Author and Instructor Matthew Brock, Author and Editor-in-Residence Carol Dougherty, WRW Co-Founder and Author Gail Provost Stockwell, WRW Program Director, author, instructor Jason Sitzes, WRW Coordinator Lisa Willars-Pirc
