Waterston to hold writing workshop
Ellen Waterston, award-winning author and poet, will lead Outpost, a week long creative writing workshop, July 8-15.
Titled “Story Catching,” the Outpost workshop is intended to inspire participants to discover the stories, poems and short memoirs that have been waiting to surface. As a member of Fishtrap’s Summer Faculty and literary gathering in Enterprise,  this is the second year of Waterston’s Werner Fellowship residency.
“Cold Snap,” a chapbook of new poetry and prose released by Fishtrap Inc. in December 2011, was the outgrowth of Waterston’s 2011 residency. All proceeds from sales of the chapbook benefit the Werner Residency Fellowship at Fishtrap, a nonprofit organization that promotes writing about the West.
Over the course of th e retreat, Waterston will coax to the surface stories, poems and short memoirs participants never knew were there, waiting. Participants and faculty retreat to a scenic, remote location with a vista that stretches from the Seven Devils to the Wallowa Mountains for five days of writing instruction, writing, solitude, day trips, nature study, camping and sharing.
The group returns to Wallowa Lake Camp and Retreat Center for its final day of workshop and a weekend of panel discussions, an evening keynote by David James Duncan, author of “The River Why” and “The Brothers K,” and breakout sessions.
The intent of Outpost is to offer an opportunity for people to connect with the natural environment of northeastern Oregon and to write about their experience. Outpost is led by writing faculty who are intrigued with and have published work about the relationship between civilization and wildness. An experienced naturalist leads some interpretive walks.
The Outpost workshop is underwritten by Ann Werner, a former wilderness ranger in the Wallowa country, in the hope of encouraging writing about the landscapes she dearly loves.
For more information about the workshop or to register, visit www.fishtrap.org or call 541-426-3623.
