3rd Annual Lost Lake Writers Retreat  October 4-7, 2018 #michiganwriters #michlit #motownwriters

3rd Annual Lost Lake Writers Retreat

October 4-7, 2018

Springfed Arts and Inspiration Alcona are proud to announce the teacher lineup for the 2018 event, to be held Oct. 4-7 at Lost Lake Woods Club in northeast Michigan’s Alcona County. The location is a hotel overlooking a small lake on the edge of the forest.

Novelists Jacquelyn Mitchard and Michael Zadoorian will lead prose writers. Mitchard’s “The Deep End of the Ocean” was made into a movie starring Michelle Pfeiffer in 1999. In March, Zadoorian’s “The Leisure Seeker” debuted as a film starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland.

Poets Cecilia Woloch, Jack Ridl and Kathleen McGookey will lead poets, along with songwriter Emily Rose. Woloch’s “Tsigan: The Gypsy Poem” is a book-length work that has been developed into a stage performance. Ridl has a new book, “St. Peter and the Goldfinch,” coming in 2019. McGookey is a specialist in prose poetry with three books, two chapbooks and a translation of French poetry to her credit. Rose is a Detroit songwriter who has won Best Acoustic Songwriter at the Detroit Music Awards four times since 2009.

Information about the retreat is available at InspirationAlcona.org and Springfed.org.

.@Donald_Levin’s New Book Launch is Coming June 21 via @GreyWolfe_Pub #michiganwriters #michlit #mittenlit #indiebooks

Just a quick reminder . . . the book launch party celebrating the publication of my fifth Martin Preuss mystery, AN UNCERTAIN ACCOMPLICE, is coming up in less than two weeks!
It’s at 7 pm on Thursday, June 21st, at the Grey Wolfe Scriptorium Bookstore, 145 E. 14 Mile, in Clawson in the Ace Hardware Plaza, one block east of Main Street. There’s a lot of construction on 14 Mile, but the bookstore parking lot is accessible either through 14 Mile or by circling around behind 14 and coming in through Bowers Street.
I’ll be signing and selling copies of the new book, and all the other books in the series will be available as well. We’ll have refreshments and live music. It’s free and open to the public, and friends and family are of course welcome.

Event: The 13th Annual Interlochen Writers Retreat (June 11-14, 2018) | #michlit #motownwriters #michigan |

Interlochen Writers Retreat

The 13th Annual Interlochen Writers Retreat (June 11-14, 2018) offers a choice of four courses, each grounded in different craft concepts, across genres, with an emphasis on generating new work, and appealing to advanced and beginning writers alike. Spend four days studying the craft concept of your choice —content, character, image, narrative— and write new material across an array of genres, or apply new knowledge to your existing drafts as you gain skills in class and write independently during “off” hours. Attend provocative presentations by the faculty, as well as faculty and participant readings. Enjoy lakeside lunches and spontaneous conversations around campus while making connections in the literary world that will last for years to come.

2018 Writers Retreat Course Descriptions: Click Here!

Faculty:
(Extra)ordinary Content: Patricia Ann McNair
Character Development: Eric Charles May
Image Across Genres: Brittany Cavallaro
Building Narratives: Desiree Cooper
Artistic Director: Katey Schultz
Writer-in-Residence: Anne-Marie Ooman
