The John Long Writing Symposium—a five-day
intensive clinic held in Carbondale, Colorado—has been slated for July 13 through 16.
Sponsored by adidas and taught by John Long, climbing's most accomplished and acclaimed author, the first-of-its-kind symposium will teach writers of all
abilities and experience the ins and out of narrative writing, reporting, selling work and more. "It's a rare opportunity for writers to sit down one-on-one
with John Long," says Rock and Ice editor Jeff Jackson. "I only wish the course had been available when I was trying to break into writing."
Jackson, along with the editors of Rock and Ice, will assist Long by offering break-out clinics covering topics including how to write for online,
news and service departments. Enrollment is limited to 12 students.
Cost: $750, includes lunches and a dinner with John Long and the Rock and Ice editors.
Where: Rock and Ice offices in Carbondale, Colorado.
When: July 14 through 18.
