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 John Brehm, Frances Lefkowitz, 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 bring forth the best in your own essays, short stories, and poems. A Readers Write session will help get your pen moving.
