Seventh Annual Sandhill Writers Retreat set for May 18

The Seventh Annual Sandhill Writers Retreat will be held Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at University Campus. This affordable, one-day program is for writers of all levels who wish to hone their craft and renew their joy in writing. The event is open to the members of the university community, the public (including college students),  and members of the military and veterans.

Past Sandhill retreat participants have praised the quality of the instruction and interaction with other writers during the retreat. The 2019 program features 16 hands-on writing classes in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, poetry performance, and publishing. Classes will focus on lessons in craft and imaginative exercises that lead to new works and new skills. Also included are a faculty reading and book signing, and an optional lunchtime open reading for participants. A limited number of private one-on-one manuscript consultations is available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

For more information, contact, the retreat director and assistant professor of English and creative writing, or consult the retreat webpage to read about the retreat faculty and classes, and to register online. Early registration, which offers the most favorable admission rates ($35 to $95), remains open until midnight, May 15.
