Next week’s Ink cover story is about unique summer classes that cater to your curiosities. In the meantime, though, the annual Mark Twain Writers Workshop (for college credit and non-credit students) is open for sign-ups.
The workshop is not a study of Mark Twain; rather, it’s offered to fiction writers, poets, essayists or screenwriters of all skill levels who are looking to improve their craft.
Speakers will include: Speer Morgan, novelist and editor of the Missouri Review; fiction and poetry award-winner Mariko Nagai; short-story award winner Stephanie Powell Watts; Missouri Poet Laureate William Trowbridge; screenwriter Mitch Brian; novelist Michael Pritchett; history writer and professor Jennifer Phegley; New Letters magazine editor Robert Stewart; radio producer Angela Elam; novelist Thomas Fox Averill; and poet Kathryn Nuernberger.
The classes are co-sponsored by New Letters magazine and KCUR-FM.
When: 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. weekdays from June 4 to June 22
Where: UMKC campus
Details: 816-235-2736 (non-credit option), 816-235-1307 (credit option), newletters.org/writingConferences.asp
