Mont Blanc Writing Workshops

Popular writing courses held every June in Chamonix

Featured in:

Mont Blanc Writing Workshops take place in Chamonix in June each year. 

Budding writers of any level can take part in the sessions to hone their writing skills, whether they're looking to start a writing project or bring one to a conclusion and get advise on getting published. 

The workshops run for two weeks in June, with participants working with bestselling and award winning authors like Pam Houston, Erin Belieu, Adrian Matejka, David Daley and Ann Hood. (Previous authors in attendance have included Cheryl Strayed and Alexander Chee).

Classes follow a traditional workshop format and are capped at 12 participants per group, working with one author for the duration of the two weeks. Each student will have their work critiqued twice before the group, with the faculty member running the show.  Classes meet once a day, usually in the morning, and typically last for about three hours.

Former students have gone on to publish books, articles, and short stories.

This year's workshop takes place from 11th to 23rd June 2017.
