Creative Bootcamp at Kripalu A Craft Lab and Writing Workshop


If you feel stuck with your creative work, are ready to move beyond the draft stage, or have always wanted to try your hand at fiction, this program is an opportunity to dive in and make significant progress on a single piece of long-form writing.

Through a mix of writing workshops and craft-lab sessions, novelists Nellie Hermann and Chris Adrian help you target specific issues through guided readings and focused short writing exercises. I am offering a workshop to share insights into the publishing process. The program also offers

  • Tools for creative play

  • Opportunities for feedback from peers and from major literary voices

  • Important practical tips for bringing your stories into the world.

Kripalu’s serene and nourishing surroundings foster creative contemplation, empowering you to move beyond boundaries and barriers you have been struggling with (or anticipating) in your writing. Return home with new tools and insights to move toward a finished work.
