Into the Fire: The Sun Celebrates Personal Writing

Oct 20 - 22, 2017 Begins in 2 months
with Sy Safransky, Doug Crandell, Danusha Lameris, Heather Sellers, Sparrow & Joe Wilkins

Since 1974, The Sun has published the kind of brave, revealing writing that lives up to the magazine’s motto: “What is to give light must endure burning.” We invite you to join Sun readers and contributors—including Doug Crandell, Danusha Laméris, Heather Sellers, Sparrow, Joe Wilkins, and editor and publisher Sy Safransky—for a weekend retreat celebrating the written word. The authors will lead workshops geared to bringing forth the best in your own essays, short stories, and poems. A Readers Write session will help get your pen moving.
