Writing Wyoming : Life on the Mountains and High Plains

When participants leave the workshop, they will have a strong framework and approach for writing creatively about matters of great importance to them as Wyoming citizens, drawing on their own knowledge and experience to add their voices critically and meaningfully to ongoing, community and state conversations—some, through the venue of publication.
