What makes a title tick?  What propels a first line to the second?  How do you know when you’ve found the right ending, and how do you know when you haven’t?  In this multi-genre residency, writers will experience a new model of workshop, one that centers on the writing process as opposed to the product itself.  Join acclaimed writer and professor Michael Martone (author of BroodingFour for a Quarter, among others) for a three-day residency focused on exploring the many facets of prose writing, as well as the larger issues of the genre itself.

Special features of this writing retreat include:
