"Far and Away" The 2019 Story Catcher Writing Workshop will be held in June 17-19, 2019 at Fort Robinson near Crawford, NE.

This year's workshop features Frank X Walker, Marie Mutsuki Mockett  and Brad Aaron Modlin

This year’s workshop is inspired by our “Frontier and Remote” (FAR) location where we have invited writers-in-residence who have developed their talents from environments and experiences quite far AWAY from this region, encouraging participants to get outside themselves and explore new places, genres and approaches from diverse perspectives across the country and beyond.    

Set in the breathtaking Pine Ridge Region of Northwest Nebraska, we will gather in the historic buildings and scenic spots around Fort Robinson State Park and will lodge in the 1890 Brick Officer Quarters. Here, our writers-in-residence will lead sessions focused on crafting and improving our writing, providing participants a chance to create new work to then share and receive personalized feedback during the retreat.  This inspirational setting fosters a wonderful writing community focused on exploring the wild terrains of our lives.
