Registration includes:

  • 15 hours of class in an in-depth writing subject
  • opening dinner
  • lunch each day
  • evening events including a session with an intellectual property attorney

Payment plans available!

When you register, make a deposit of at least $200, then pay more when you're ready. The balance must be paid in full by June 2.  Attendees with unpaid balances after that date will forfeit registration, and money paid will be refunded except for a $50 processing fee.

Private rooms with private bathrooms available for $40 per night!

Enjoy campus life and be right in the heart of the WTWA action at Buff Hall for $40 per night.  One good thing about COVID: we will only assign two people per suite, so you get your own sanitized, private room and bathroom at the $40 price.  Rooms are limited this year, so register early to stay in Canyon at an affordable rate.

Make your trip writing retreat and avoid the real world a little longer...

WTWA officially ends with a luncheon on Saturday, but you can stay in the residence hall Saturday night, giving you all afternoon and evening to sequester for uninterrupted writing time.  You'll be inspired and excited to continue your writing, so don't lose that momentum.  Stay the extra night and let your renewed creative energies flourish on the page.
