May 19 – 21, 2024 – Mining the Story – Mineral Point, WI

7th Annual Writing Retreat

Join us for the seventh annual Writing Retreat at Shake Rag Alley, open to writers of all levels.

Explore storytelling, narrative, flash forms, and working across genres with retreat faculty Patricia Ann McNair (Explorations in Flash Forms; Retreat Artistic Director), Christine Maul Rice (Writing Fiction), and Sheree L. Greer (Memoir & Personal Narrative). These in-depth workshops will challenge you across the three days and are led by award-winning published authors and active, experienced teachers of writing.

Interwoven around these main workshops are optional and inspiring creative activities that will make for a retreat jam-packed with opportunities to learn, share, network, and write. Postcard Poetics with guest faculty Matthew Guenette takes you on an adventure in alternative logic. The Gallery Walk introduces you to the creative community of Mineral Point. The Saturday night reading & Open Mic provides an opportunity to share your work.
