Enrollment open for UMKC’s Mark Twain Writers Workshop

Mark Twain


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
