Summer Camp at the Barn: A Week of Creative Mentorship
It’s our signature annual workshop, and in many ways, the focal point of our workshop year.

A Party for Peter Jacobi!
At this year’s Writing Nonfiction workshop, we had a party for Peter, who had decided this year’s workshop would be his last. Peter was on the faculty for our very first Writer’s Workshop at Chautauqua, and has continued to offer exceptional instruction and mentorship to our attendees through the years.

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
