Workshops & Retreats

The Burlington Writers Workshop offers nearly 300 workshops each year in Burlington, Montpelier, and Middlebury, as well as a series of full-day writing retreats in locations throughout Vermont:

Burlington: We hold a variety of workshops—including genre-specific workshops, craft workshops, and a literature reading group—in our writing studio at 110 Main Street, Studio 3C in downtown Burlington. Workshops are held most evenings during the week. We also offer regular daytime workshops and occasional weekend workshops in this space. View the Burlington workshop schedule >

Middlebury: Our Middlebury workshop meets once each month in downtown Middlebury, usually at the Isley Public Library (location sometimes changes so be sure to check the description for each workshop). View the Middlebury workshop schedule >

Montpelier: Our Montpelier workshop meets once each month at the Montpelier Senior Activity Center. View the Montpelier workshop schedule >

Retreats: BWW offers a series of writing retreats designed to provide our members with opportunities to gather in quiet, inspiring spaces for more focused discussion, instruction, and writing time—and new connections with other members.   View more information about our retreats >
