OMEGA Workshop: Writing Life

Omega Teachers Studio
July 2-7, 2023
Members: $380 | Standard: $425

Bring your best idea or writing project and dive deep into a joyful and moving exploration of yourself and your work.

Chris Wells, creator of the Writing Life workshops, guides you through an evocative series of conversations, deep and reflective questions, and assignments that take you on a passionate journey of self-discovery.

With dynamic writing prompts and creative exercises, his expertise helps you get at what you want to write and make decisions on how to move forward. You write as much as possible over the course of the week and leave with a ton of new writing and a greater sense of yourself as an artist.

Writers of all genres are welcome—bloggers, memoirists, playwrights, academics, historians, performers, novelists, travel writers, you name it. No previous writing experience is required.

This is always an amazing week—Arts Week!—with lots of great stuff going on. A wonderful time to be at Omega.]

OMEGA Workshop:
Storytelling Your Life

Omega Teachers Studio
Sep 24–29, 2023
Members: $380 | Standard: $425

Telling your own story has the potential to illuminate a deeper understanding of yourself, your purpose, and where you are on your own path.

In this joyful and engaging exploration of life, designed exclusively for Omega Arts Week, award-winning storyteller Chris Wells leads you on an adventure of discovering your greatest stories.

Through an evocative combination of conversations, writing prompts, and assignments designed to take you on a journey of rediscovery through the most significant events of your life, you gain practical and effective tools for making art from life experience.

Your creations are shared at the end of the week as the retreat culminates in a transformative storytelling performance. Folks leave with a story they can tell on their feet, as well as a more integrated, empowered self.


Many of you know that I've gotten all fired up about fiction over the past two years. I'm currently working on my second novel. I'm also developing a year-long seminar dedicated to the novel. Reading, writing, discussion, lessons, support.

Email me if you're interested. Must commit to a year (monthly meetings with assignments in between) and to writing and/or finishing a novel.
