Provincetown, MA, beautiful coastal community of artists and thinkers, is ready to welcome you to the fourth season of summer workshops and fellowships at the Norman Mailer Writers Colony.
Mailer’s living room, looking out over Cape Cod Bay, will again host emerging and mid-career writers who wish to further their craft with the company and guidance of distinguished authors, faculty and visitors.
Follow the links below for program descriptions and faculty bios. Most deadlines are Friday, March 30 by mail to our New York office (and a few programs close later than that).
- One-week Workshops — in memoir, poetry, screenwriting, fiction (selling a novel; revitalizing fiction; writing character), playwriting (staging and script analysis; writing inspired by August Wilson), and of course, creative nonfiction (travel writing; developing voice; historical narrative; longform Internet journalism; methods of the New Journalism; ethical & legal concerns)
- Four-week Fellowships– in fiction, nonfiction and poetry with mentors Jeffery Renard Allen, Gregory Curtis and Meena Alexander
- Labor Day Week Retreat — one week of quiet, unprogrammed time to focus on your manuscript
Please join us for another beautiful summer at the Mailer Colony.
