Tony Hillerman Prize





WORDHARVEST is on hiatus. We deeply appreciate all of the instructors, students, and volunteers who helped us create and present our programs on the craft and business of writing.

Founders Anne Hillerman and Jean Schaumberg have enjoyed the years spent organizing Wordharvest One-Day Writers Workshops and the Tony Hillerman Writers Conference and getting to know the participants and instructors. We loved the stories of how workshops and conferences helped everyone.

Sign up for our mailing list (in left side bar) and we will let you know when we resume workshops and conferences and add new webinars.

What is Wordharvest?

Founded by Anne Hillerman and Jean Schaumberg in 2001, WORDHARVEST is devoted to the art and craft of writing. From our headquarters in Santa Fe, New Mexico, we celebrate the legacy of iconic mystery author Tony Hillerman with the Tony Hillerman Prize for first mystery novel, and the Tony Hillerman Writers Conference, a three-day workshop offering how-to advice on writing techniques and the business of writing. Session topics range from publishing e-books to writing fiction and non-fiction. The Conference provides an intimate environment to get feedback and critiques about your writing, network with literary agents and editors, and find writing inspiration.Looking for information about the Tony Hillerman Prize?
