MWW Fellows

MWW Writers Retreat Fellows

For seven years, Midwest Writers Workshop sponsored a Writers Retreat at Pokagon State Park in Northern Indiana, usually the first weekend in May.  Attracting hundreds of submissions from as far away as Florida, Michigan, Missouri and North Carolina, the Writers Retreat awarded MWW Fellowships to nine emerging novelists. The two-day session featured critiques, one-on-one consultations and discussions related to marketing saleable manuscripts. Faculty for the past several years has been Holly Miller, Terry Faherty and Dennis Hensley, with Cathy Shouse serving as on-site coordinator. The Writers Retreat has been supported by a grant from the Ball Brothers Foundation.
