Table Rock Writers Workshop grew out of the 30-year-old Duke University Writers Workshop when it ended. The Table Rock Writers’ Workshop, continues as an intensive, small-group learning experience designed to stretch participants’ creative capacities and knowledge in a supportive and noncompetitive environment.
Our instructors are chosen not only for their distinguished professional credentials, but also for their skill in building a learning community where the joy of new discovery is primary. Because writing is very hard work, we also reserve time for relaxation, recreation and reflection.
The mission of Table Rock is:
• To provide a generous, supportive environment for adult writers at all levels of experience to reflect on the challenges and rewards of writing and to focus on improving their craft.
• To offer first-rate instruction across genres with an emphasis on identifying, shaping, and polishing each participant’s distinctive voice and material.
• To foster a spirit of community where all participants may receive an honest and sensitive appraisal of their works in progress.
