The Freeflow Institute invites you to earn credit and take your craft outside this summer on one of our river writing workshops.
Freeflow offers intelligently structured, professionally catered trips into wild spaces, affording established and emerging writers, artists, and athletes the time, community, and inspiration to take their craft outside and build creative cohorts of advocates for thoughtful strategic environmental preservation. In 2018, Freeflow successfully kicked off its inaugural season down the Main Salmon and Missouri Rivers. Two full courses with writers of all ages, abilities, and experiences floated the rivers and wrote with award-winning writers, fine-tuning their craft while learning new lessons, tools, and approaches.
In summer 2019 Freeflow offers three new courses hosted by exceptional writers, all well-known in their genre and field. Float down the Green River through Gates of Ladore with Pam Houston of Contents May Have Shifted, calling on desert sandstone to fuel creative innovation. Immerse yourself in one of America's Wild and Scenic Rivers, the Main Salmon, with adventure writer Brendan Leonard of Semi-Rad. Or, stay local in Montana on the Big Blackfoot with non-fiction author and poet Chris Dombrowski, author of Body of Water.
If you are interested in combining your passion for wild places and storytelling, consider adding an experience with Freeflow Institute to your academic program. Earn 2 credits towards your degree at the University of Montana, or work with us to transfer the UM courses to your home institution. Courses run June, July, and August and range from four to six days in duration. Scholarships are available and students can earn graduate or undergraduate credits for most programs.
Not sure? Read this testimonial from a 2018 Freeflow participant:
“As an alum of the 2018 class, I whole-heartedly endorse this course and river trip; one of the very best things I have done during my sabbatical! Chandra puts together an outstanding river course and experience with a fantastic crew of river guides and fellow instructors; a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a wilderness setting that I feel so lucky to have completed. Don't hesitate -- sign up for this wonderful course!”
