Hosted by Aspen Words, this internationally recognized literary gathering will welcome writers Richard Russo, Ann Hood, Akhil Sharma, Dani Shapiro, Andre Dubus III, Hannah Tinti, and Sharr White (playwright).
Mornings will be devoted to workshops, including the ever-popular Readers’ Retreat. Afternoons and evenings will include readings and conversations with the featured authors, as well as discussions with publishing industry professionals.
Registration is open for three non-juried workshops: Beginning Fiction, Playwriting, and the Readers’ Retreat. Tickets for the public programs and the benefit are available May 1.
