Fresh Water, Fresh Voices Writing Conference


The Fresh Water, Fresh Voices conference takes advantage of our unique location on Lake Superior's shores, to offer writing workshops with talented published authors in tandem with outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, and biking. Half of each day will be spent in workshops and craft talks, and the other half in guided group outings on the trails and lake. Evenings will be spent listening to readings and communing with writers over dinner and cocktails. 

Workshops will be led by outstanding published writers including Pam Houston, Diane Les Becquets, Frank X Walker, Mark Sundeen, Nicole Walker, Peter Geye, Kimberly Blaeser, and others.
