Write On, Door County will offer several writing intensives in August for beginning to experienced writers at its campus, 4210 Juddville Road in Juddville.
For the annual Recharge Your Creative Battery retreat, led by writer James Mihaley, participants may choose the Aug. 1-2 or the Aug. 3-4 program option, both held 9 am – 4 pm. Mihaley has published a middle-grade novel and a poetry collection, and he’s completed a nonfiction book on Palmer Johnson. Most recently, he wrote and produced the documentary short film, Fog, about the homeless population in San Francisco. The film is receiving wide acclaim.
Writers Lan Samantha Chang, Nan Cohen and Kyoko Mori will visit Write On the following week to lead master classes. The novel-writing class with Chang is full, but some openings remain for the poetry session with Cohen and the nonfiction session about writing about home and family with Mori.
Nan Cohen has written two poetry collections and a chapbook and has earned a Wallace Stegner Fellowship, Rona Jaffe Writers Award and literature fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. She is the poetry director for the Napa Valley Writers Conference.
Kyoko Mori is the award-winning author of the memoirs Yarn, Polite Lies and The Dream of Water and serves on the creative-writing faculty of George Mason University and Lesley University’s low-residency MFA program.
