2016 Writing in the Dark Retreat

Saturday, February 20th from 9am-4pm in the Bear Gallery (3rd Floor AK Centennial Center for the Arts, Pioneer Park, 2300 Airport Way)

Treat yourself to an all-day workshop with Kris Farmen, which is designed to help you generate new material, gather ideas, and rejuvenate your writing. The retreat includes breakfast and lunch, literary camaraderie and a delightful day of stimulating discussion. Bring a notebook, a sample of some of your favorite work (poetry or prose) and your sense of inventiveness. The day will culminate with a reading of the work created during the retreat.

Spend a day looking at the world differently through your writing. Generate new work, gather ideas, and consider new projects. Feel free to bring work in progress (poetry or prose) that you would like to look at with new eyes.

Registration Fee: $35 in advance. $40 at the door. Must be paid online through PayPal, mailed to PO Box 72786, Fairbanks, AK 99707, or hand-delivered to Fairbanks Arts Association Office, 1st Floor Centennial Center, Pioneer Park. For more information call: 907.456.6485 ext. 227 or email: literary@fairbanksarts.org

    Do we have a location yet for Writing in the Dark? And I heard Sean Hill will be the Guest Artist. Is this true?
