Summer Writers Retreat

June 17 - June 21

The retreat offers adults the opportunity to work on personal creative writing, share their work, receive feedback, and interact with others interested in writing.  Writers have the opportunity to work in the Barn-Studio where Ernest Hemingway wrote during visits to Piggott.  Not all writers come with something in mind to write, but many do.  The retreat is structured to be interactive, a time when friendships are formed, craft is honed, and creativity is enhanced.

This year’s Hemingway-Pfeiffer Writer-in-Residence Annmarie Kelly-Harbaugh will serve as mentor for the retreat.  She is the author of Here Be Dragons, a memoir about the wonderful misery of raising children with someone you love. She also hosts Wild Precious Life, a literary podcast about making the most of the time we have.

Annmarie teaches writing at Ashland University where she also works with incarcerated students trying to obtain their degrees. Her essays have appeared on in numerous publications and staged with the Cleveland Humanities Festival and Listen to Your Mother, Pittsburgh. In her non-writing moments, Kelly-Harbaugh loves kickboxing, karaoke, dogs, ping-pong, books that make her laugh, movies that make her cry, and salads other people make her eat. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio, where she is currently querying a novel about all the truth in the lies we tell.
