Spring Into Writing with CityLit and Frostburg


After a long, cold winter it will be time to thaw-out those creative juices and kick-start your writing.  “Spring Into Writing” offers an unprecedented opportunity for writers in this region to develop their craft (poetry and fiction) and develop their careers (publishing).  This retreat in Western Maryland is convenient from Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburgh, and Morgantown, but space is limited so reserve your spot today.  Writers groups are especially encouraged to reserve spots and accommodations together.

Presented by CityLit Project and Frostburg Center for Creative Writing, “Spring Into Writing” takes place over three nights and four days March 31-April 3, 2011, at New Germany State Park in Grantsville, MD.  The retreat provides writers with time away from their routines to write, to talk with other literary artists, and to benefit from indivudal critiques.
