Odyssey: Memory and Imagination, A Writer's Retreat

This weekend retreat is designed to get your writing gene jumping. With lodging and meals provided in a cloistered writing environment, you can seize the opportunity to both write alone and work with others. Workshops, writing prompts, and discussions will focus on memory, imagination, and traditional and hybrid forms of memoir, fiction, and poetry. Expect the unexpected, with readings by guest writers and an open reading by retreat participants.

Just added: James Magruder is a fiction writer, playwright, and translator. His versions of Molière, Marivaux, Lesage, Labiche, Gozzi, Dickens, Hofmannsthal, and Giraudoux have been produced across the country. He also wrote the book for the ill-fated Broadway musical Triumph of Love. His debut novel, Sugarless (University of Wisconsin Press), was a Lambda Literary Award finalist and was shortlisted for the VCU Cabell First Novelists Award and the 2010 William Saroyan International Writing Prize. Love Slaves of Helen Hadley Hall (Queen's Ferry Press) was released in 2016. His short story collection, Let Me See It (TriQuarterly Books/Northwestern University Press) appeared in 2014.
