Join me for a week of writing on the Zumwalt Prairie with Fishtrap

“I Come Into the Peace of Wild Things” with CMarie Fuhrman
June 20-25, 2022

Fishtrap Outpost

Out on the Zumwalt Prairie, you will explore ways to invigorate your writing through discovery in the landscape. We will fill our spirits with the messages of prairie grasses and thunderstorms. We will read poems and prose from writers whose work brings comfort and rekindles our spirits. Most importantly we will consider the peace of wild things. Their effect on us. And in return, we will write in reciprocity to wild places, celebrate the prairie and the plants and animals who inhabit it with stories and poems that stand in defense of them and showcase the need for wild places on the land, in our lives, and in our imaginations. We will share our work with the prairie, the sky, our ancestors, and each other. And we will also keep some quietly to ourselves too. Lovers of wilderness and writers of all experience are welcome.

The Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference has been the place where writers from Alaska and beyond come together to create community and learn how to be better writers. 2020 was a year of transition, but one thing that we’ve learned is that the conference is important to many people.
We are pleased to announce that the 2022 conference will be in-person at the beautiful Kachemak Bay Campus in downtown Homer, Alaska.
Joining Jericho Brown are the amazing Victoria Chang, Christina Chiu, CMarie Fuhrman, Toni Jensen, T. Geronimo Johnson, Tynan Kogane, Marie Mutsuki Mockett, and Anjali Singh.

August 7-12, 2022, at Chico Hot Springs
The Elk River Writers Workshop embodies the idea that deep, communal experiences with the wild open the door to creativity. We bring together some of the most celebrated nature writers in the United States with students who are serious about fostering a connection with place in their writing. It all happens at Chico Hot Springs, a historic retreat just north of Yellowstone National Park.
For our 2022 workshop, we are thrilled to welcome faculty members Camille Dungy, Sean Hill, J. Drew Lanham, Beth Piatote, and Laura Pritchett.
Our workshop takes place in one of the most wild and beautiful settings in the country, a place that has inspired the work of conservationists, writers and artists for over a century: Tom McGuane, Richard Brautigan, William Hjortsberg, Russell Chatham, Jim Harrison, Jo Sykes and Richard S. Wheeler all have called this corner of Montana home.
During our five-day workshop, we offer small classes with workshop faculty, excursions in and around Paradise Valley, and a chance to join a diverse community of writers, artists and conservationists whose work is situated in, and inspired by, the natural environment.
Workshop classes take place in the mornings at Chico Hot Springs and are limited to 10 students each. In the afternoons, students may select from a menu of excursions with experts in local ecology, wildlife and archaeology, or take part in onsite workshops and panels. Evenings feature faculty and student readings.
