If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it.
Feeling called to write? Want to learn how? The Northwest Institute of Literary Arts (NILA) supports you by providing education, community, encouragement, and access to professional literary resources.
Since 1998, NILA has achieved its mission through a number of programs, including the Whidbey Island Writers Conference, which offered a breadth of learning opportunities over a three-day period. In 2015, NILA changed the conference format to monthly day-long In-Depth sessions that give you an opportunity to learn more about something you really want to focus on.
The Northwest Institute of Literary Arts offers these In-Depth sessions, evening classes, and online classes in addition to its MFA program in creative writing.
