Using memory as a starting point, Green River Writers Workshops focus on the craft of storytelling through memoir, fiction, historical writing, and poetry. Both experienced and beginning writers are welcome.
Writers often know what they want to write, but have rarely been introduced to the actual skills of writing. During the week we work on both previously written pieces and new work, always asking the question, “Why does a reader put down one book and keep reading another?” Our daily focus is on the craft of writing a story.

". . .In this collection of stories, A Cowgirl in Search of a Horse, Alice Winston Carney blends just the right amount of realism with childhood wonder, as we listen to the voice of a young girl acquaint us with simpler times growing up in a small town out west. . ."
Martha Meacham Story Circle Network Review
"Her language is gently poetic and fits each age she is remembering, and never looks down from an adult height. If you want to re-enter your own childhood in your own town with your own unique household of characters then read this story of hers and your head will swim with things you haven't enjoyed thinking of in a long time."
“I got all that I expected and more. I got insight into things I had never noticed in my writing before. I got a new path and new resolve. More than anything, I got direction.”
JoAnn S., New York
“I got more than I thought I would. Thank you. Great people, great feedback, great spiritual energy, insights. I wish the workshop had been longer.”
