Every year, Wildacres Workshop’s distinguished writing faculty members meet our strict requirements for Master Class-level writing, education, and teaching experience. They’re not only respected, well-published authors — they’re also outstanding teachers of their genre. 

Our 2023 writing classes included Novel, Poetry, Creative Nonfiction, Flash Fiction, and Short Story.  

When you apply for the workshop, you can select both a first choice and a second option for your class and faculty member preferences. Class and faculty requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis; but as longtime workshop alum Debbie Daniel has advised, “When you apply for a spot at Wildacres, don’t worry about the class. Just get in! Don’t miss the experience.”
