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.
C.D. Albin will serve as mentor for the retreat. Albin was born and reared in West Plains, Missouri. He earned a Doctor of Arts in English from the University of Mississippi and has taught for many years at Missouri State University—West Plains, where he founded Elder Mountain: A Journal of Ozarks Studies. He is the author of the story collection Hard Toward Home (Press 53, 2016), which was awarded the Missouri Author Award in Fiction in 2017. He recently published a collection of poetry Axe, Fire, Mule (Golden Antelope Press, 2018). In addition, his fiction, poems, and reviews have appeared in a number of periodicals, including Arkansas Review, Cape Rock, Georgia Review, Harvard Review, Natural Bridge, and Slant.
