Maslow Family Creative Writing Program, Wilkes University

Lenore Hart teaches in the Maslow Family Creative Writing Program at Wilkes University, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. This is a fully-accredited low-residency MA/MFA program that offers specializations in fiction, nonfiction, playwriting, poetry, screenwriting, documentary film, and graphic novels, plus two different study tracks: publishing or education. Students attend two weeklong residencies on campus, in January and June, and work one on one with a mentor, online, between residencies.  A weekender program is also available for those who can't attend the full weeklong, on-campus residencies.  More information: Maslow/Wilkes Creative Writing.

Ossabaw Island Writers' Retreat

The OSSABAW ISLAND WRITERS' RETREAT takes place twice a year on the beautiful, undeveloped barrier island located just off Savannah, Georgia. The retreat features hands-on workshops and seminars led by nationally-recognized faculty, visiting agents and publishers, and evening readings by faculty and participants. Local gourmet Low Country cuisine and an unspoiled, natural setting, with scenic views and a plethora of wildlife, make this writing retreat unique. Fiction faculty is Lenore Hart. Tony Morris is the poetry faculty, and Beverly Donofrio is the nonfiction instructor, as is David Poyer, who also presents a contemporary and practical publishing workshop. Partial scholarships are sometimes available. Want to reserve a place in the weeklong Spring Retreat, or the extended Fall Weekend Bash, in either poetry, fiction, or nonfiction?
