Writers Institute

Institute of Authors

UW Madison Writers Institute UW-Madison Writers' Institute is now in its twenty-ninth year. A large part of the company's succes has to do with you - our team. Most of our authors have already taken part in earlier authoring institutions or are part of our on-line and face-to-face courses. Several of our authors are attending our other activities - the Write By The Lake Retreat and our Weekend With Your Novel Falls experience - while others are attending our one-day courses or contacting our writers to review their work.

Regardless of the degree of participation, we are all part of this shared unit of writers. There is no other season in the year when so many of us come together for a long week-end that will encourage us to discover our trade, perfect our casting and camping skills and exchange our aims and desires with others.
