Spring Into Writing Retreat

I'm really excited about this retreat. It's close to home—ie, picturesque western Maryland—has some very talented writers headlining, and is relatively inexpensive. I hope you'll give it a look-see as well:


CityLit Project, who nurtures the culture of literature in Baltimore with writing conferences, festivals, The "Write Here, Write Now," writing classes, children's and adult programming at the Baltimore Book Festival, and school outreach, presents its first-ever writing retreat in Western Maryland for poetry, fiction, and publishing.

Spring Into Writing Retreat (March 31-April 3, 2011; 3 nights, New Germany State Park, Grantsville, MD), features Jessica Anya Blau (Drinking Closer to Home, Fiction, Goucher College), Gerry LaFemina (The Vanishing Horizon, Poetry, Frostburg State University), and Gregg Wilhelm (Executive Director, CityLit Project, Publisher, CityLit Press) and special guest Ed Ochester (General Editor, Drue Heinz Literature Prize, University of Pittsburgh Press).
