Creative Writing Workshops and Retreats

Do you write just for the fun of it? Do you want to write a book? Do you crave the input of other writers? Perhaps you've wondered if you are  a writer.

You've come to the right place. Published author Dale Slongwhite has been coaching writers and leading creative writing workshops for over ten years. Through her gentle, positive approach even the most timid  writer quickly gains confidence to utter the words "I am a writer!"

Her week-long summer camp in her home in Florida has resulted in several teenagers majoring in creative writing in college. 

Through her "Workshop on the Road" program, she will travel to your location to present a workshop or retreat.

Dale Slongwhite's latest book will be released in May 2014 by the University Press of Florida. Click here to preorder through Amazon.com. 

"Poignant, gut-wrenching, and real, this book should be required reading for everyone who eats." Barry Estabrook, author of Tomatoland.


Ms. Slongwhite presents full-day workshops, weekend retreats, and a weeklong retreat on Star Island off the coast of New Hampshire.

Summer Camp

Designed for kids aged 11-18 who enjoy writing. We meet four hours a day for five days and then return on Sunday evening to present a program for their parents.​
