The Kenyon Review Writers Workshop
“It’s a bit like boot camp (without the yelling and obstacle courses) for serious writers. Intensely creative, pushing you beyond what you thought you were capable of achieving—you eat, sleep, drink, breathe writing. And all around you are your fellow writers and instructors, cheering you on, encouraging you, word by word. Workshops are held for three hours each morning, focusing on writing exercises, reading and critiquing work, and talking about writing technique. The afternoons allow private time for reading and writing. Evenings are spent with public readings from instructors, visiting writers, and workshop participants.”
Kenyon Review Short Fiction Contest for writers under the age of thirty, Alice Hoffman, final judge. Submissions 1200 words or less. Deadline February 1st-February 15th. No entry fee.
The Kenyon Review will publish the winning short story, and the author will be awarded a scholarship to attend the 2008 Writers Workshop, June 14th to the 21st, in beautiful Gambier, Ohio.
