An inspiring five-week online workshop

Led by Luray Gross

Each Tuesday, 7:00-9:00pm EDT/EST

In this generative multi-genre online workshop, we will explore the edges where the liveliest ideas, emotions, images and questions are often generated. With the companionship of catalyst texts and guided writing prompts, we will mine these “in between” spaces, which occur at borders, such as those between sea and shore, self and other, speech and silence, dream and reality, body and mind or flow and form. Write brand new fiction, memoir, creative nonfiction or poetry, or revise your works-in-progress. Beginning and experienced writers of all genres are welcome.


Featured Writers Include:

Luray Gross is the author of four collections of poetry, most recently Lift from Ragged Sky Press. A storyteller as well as a writer, she works extensively throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania as an Artist in Residence. She was the recipient of a Fellowship in Poetry from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and named one of their Distinguished Teaching Artists. She was the 2002 Poet Laureate of Bucks County and resident faculty at the 2006 Frost Place Festival and Conference on Poetry in Franconia, NH. Her poem, “The Perfection of Zero,” was featured by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book’s Public Poetry Project in 2008.

Our Participants Say it Best

"The Getaway was exactly what I needed to recharge as a writer and start the year off on the right foot. From the supportive community to the hotel’s friendly atmosphere, I left feeling inspired. Now I can't wait to get back to work on the many projects I've lined up for myself. I only wish the Getaway could last all year!" ~ Cate, Pittsburgh, PA
