All the way to Maria Stein, Ohio! The Antioch Writers’ Workshop 2015 Fall Retreat is set for October 30-November 1, and applications are being accepted now through September 12. Participants will stay in a private dorm-style room with a private bathroom, and all meals are included.
The intensive weekend will be led by two fabulous women:
Katrina Kittle, author of Traveling Light, Two Truths and a Lie, The Kindness of Strangers, and The Blessings of the Animals, all with HarperPerennial.
The Kindness of Strangers was a BookSense pick and the winner of the 2006 Great Lakes Book Award for Fiction. Early chapters from that novel earned her grants from both the Ohio Arts Council and Culture Works. The Blessings of the Animals was an Indie Next pick (August 2010), a Midwest Connections pick (September 2010), and chosen by the Women’s National Book Association as one of ten Great Group Reads for National Book Group Month (October 2010). Katrina’s first tween novel, Reasons to Be Happy, was published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky in October 2011. She earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Spalding University in Louisville, and is a popular and frequent instructor for AWW, Word’s Worth Writing Center, and other organizations.
Martha Moody, author of Best Friends, The Office of Desire, Sometimes Mine, and most recently Sharp and Dangerous Virtues, all critically acclaimed novels.
She was born and raised in Ohio. She graduated from Oberlin College and received her MD from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where she also completed her residency training in internal medicine. Now she is fully retired from medicine and devotes her time to writing and volunteer work.
Space is limited to 15 juried writers. Visit the AWW website for details on the all-inclusive cost for the weekend, and how to apply.
