Participants have three options to attend: Full Week, Morning Only, or Weekend Only. These options provide flexible opportunities for writers of all levels, schedules and budgets.

The Antioch Writers’ Workshop at the University of Dayton will hold its 33rd annual summer program July 14-20, 2018. This summer marks the workshop’s second summer program presented in partnership with University of Dayton, on the university’s campus.

Participants have three options to attend: Full Week, Morning Only, or Weekend Only. These options provide flexible opportunities for writers of all levels, schedules and budgets.

Registration for attending the full conference is open through June 18 on the workshop’s website, http://www.antiochwritersworkshop.com. Morning and A La Carte registration is open through July 9.

Keynoter and Sunday Morning Creative Writing Craft instructor is Connie Schultz (http://www.creators.com/read/connie-schultz), a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and professional in residence at Kent State University’s school of journalism. She is the author of two books and was named the recipient of the 2018 Ernie Pyle Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.

Schultz’s keynote, which will be delivered at University of Dayton, is Saturday July 14 at 7 p.m., and is free and open to the public. The workshop is able to provide this free event, as well as faculty and participant readings July 15-19 and other free events throughout the year, thanks to a grant from the Ohio Arts Council.

The Weekend Option begins on the morning of July 15, before the keynote, as a “prologue” to the weeklong workshop, and may be attended by itself or as part of the workshop week. Featured speaker is Ellen Birkett Morris, an award-winning fiction writer and poet, who will speak on “Paths to Publishing.”

Faculty from across the United States includes award-winning novelist, memoirist and essayist Sophronia Scott (“Unforgivable Love”), novelists David B. Coe (“Spell Blind”) and USA Today and New York Times’ best-selling author Megan Hart (“All Fall Down"), poets Lynn Powell (“Season of the Second Thought”) and Doug Ramspeck (“Black Flowers"), non-fiction author Joe Oestreich (“Partisans”), and novelist and essayist Rebecca Morean (“The Bench"). Agent Elizabeth Kracht (the Kimberley Cameron & Associates agency) and editor M. Scott Douglass (Main Street Rag Publishing) will also be on hand to take pitches and answer questions about the business of publishing.

Participants may opt to stay for the workshop week at the Caldwell Apartments on University of Dayton’s campus.

The workshop, originally started by Antioch College in 1987, has operated as an independent 501c3 nonprofit since 1992. In addition to its in-kind partnership with University of Dayton and grant support from the Ohio Arts Council, Antioch Writers’ Workshop at University of Dayton receives support and sponsorship from WYSO 91.3 FM, Books & Co. at The Greene, and local businesses in and Dayton.
