New Version of Hemingway Book Features Pauline’s Writings

Earlier this month, a new version of Hemingway’s 1935 Green Hills of Africa was released in celebration of the eightieth anniversary of the book.  Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway’s semi-autobiographical account of his 1933-34 safari.  His wife Pauline accompanied him on this safari.  In fact, Pauline’s uncle Gus Pfeiffer funded it.

The new edition, edited by Ernest’s grandson Sean, features an appendix of documents which give context to the book itself.  Among these is Pauline’s previously unpublished journal from the African trip.  This is a rare example of Pauline’s writing in print and will be of great interest to those wanting to know more about Pauline and her relationship with Ernest.

Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum Holds Retreat for Military Veterans

The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum & Educational Center recently held a Writing Retreat for Military Veterans. This weekend retreat was funded through a partnership with the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Over the course of the weekend, thirteen talented writers came together to hone their skills and to form a community in Northeast Arkansas at the site where Ernest Hemingway penned much of his iconic war novel A Farewell to Arms.

Dr. Rob Lamm of Arkansas State University served as mentor for the retreat. Lamm, a mentor at other retreats at HPMEC, said, “This was our first retreat attended exclusively by veterans.” He continued, “All of the writers had works in progress, so some chose to continue those works. Many wrote on their experiences in the service: boot camp, deployments (including Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Guantanamo Bay), and missions almost anywhere in the world. Others were interested in other creative genres.” Asked what he took away from the retreat, Lamm replied, “I learned about experiences unique to those who have served their country and sometimes risked their lives doing so. I shared the synergy of the group as we inspired each other to write better and more.”

Writers began each day with exercises to get them started, often looking at samples of Hemingway’s writing as models for their own. They enjoyed lunch together at the Educational Center and ended the afternoon with a group meeting to reflect, share, and discuss the processes used by each writer. Between formal meetings, the writers had time to work individually, often in the same rooms where Hemingway wrote. The format allowed writers time to focus on their own creative interests, to receive feedback on their work, and to form relationships with other writers.

Writers’ Retreats for general audiences are held twice annually at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum in Piggott. The next retreat is scheduled for Nov. 2-6, 2015, with Pat Carr of Fayetteville serving as mentor. This is the museum’s first retreat specifically for military veterans, though they are looking into the possibility of having another in the future. Click here for more information.

June 2015 Writers’ Retreat Held

June 2015 Writers' RetreatThe Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum & Educational Center recently held its Summer Writers’ Retreat. Over the course of the week, twelve talented writers came together to hone their skills and to form a community in Northeast Arkansas at the site where Ernest Hemingway penned much of his iconic novel A Farewell to Arms.

Garry Craig Powell of Conway, AR, served as mentor for the retreat. Powell grew up in England and attended the universities of Cambridge and Durham, and later, the University of Arizona. He has lived in Spain and Portugal, Poland and the United Arab Emirates, which is the setting for his novel-in-stories, Stoning the Devil (Skylight Press, 2012), which was long-listed for the Frank O’ Connor Short Story Award and the Edge Hill Short Story Prize. The book has been described as “mesmerizing” by both George Singleton and Naomi Shihab Nye. His short stories have appeared in Best American Mystery Stories 2009, McSweeney’s, Nimrod, New Orleans Review and other literary magazines, and he has been awarded fellowships by the Writers Colony at Dairy Hollow, the Hambidge Foundation, and the Arkansas Arts Council. Garry Craig Powell is an Associate Professor in the Writing Department at the University of Central Arkansas, where he teaches creative writing to undergraduates and graduate students, and he is completing a historical novel about the life of Gabriel D’ Annunzio, Italy’s greatest poet, playwright, playboy, and war hero in the early twentieth century–and also, arguably, the “John the Baptist” of the Fascist movement. For more information, see his website, garrycraigpowell.com.

Writers began each day with time to write and then came together to look at samples of Hemingway’s writing as models for their own. They enjoyed lunch together at the Educational Center and ended the afternoon with a group meeting to reflect, share, and discuss the processes used by each writer. The format allowed writers time to focus on their own creative interests, to receive feedback on their work, and to form relationships with other writers. Writers also enjoyed a reading of Powell’s own work.

Writers’ Retreats are held twice annually at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum in Piggott. The next retreat is scheduled for Nov. 2-6, 2015, with Pat Carr of Fayetteville serving as mentor. The museum will also hold a special writing retreat for military veterans in July. This special opportunity is held in partnership with the Arkansas Humanities Council.
