Write-by-the-Lake Writer's Workshop & Retreat
Public school teachers and writers from across the state attend this annual June writing week sponsored through UW-Madison Continuing Studies to improve their skills and explore new areas of writing that they can take back to their classrooms, or other jobs and careers. The popular program also draws participants from about 15 other states and a few foreign countries each year. The program is offered for noncredit continuing education or for 1-3 graduate credits in partnership with the UW-Madison Department of English. Topics studied include such things as novel writing, script writing, short stories, creative nonfiction books (such as travel), memoir and poetry.
