The Midwest Writing Center announces a creative writing Day Retreat from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at the MWC. Writers will then be encouraged to venture out to the many Quad-Cities area venues or simply use the Mississippi River as their muse to aid in a productive daylong writing session. The retreat will culminate in an informal reading by retreat participants at 3 p.m. at MWC.
Ryan Collins will serve the retreat docent, and writing prompts, artistic aids, and the MWC resource library will be available to spark creative intent.
Cost for the day retreat is $12 and includes lunch, refreshments, camaraderie, inspiration, and, most important, valuable time to focus and write.
Registration can be made by calling 563-324-1410. Credit cards are accepted by phone, in person, or via PayPal at midwestwritingcenter.org. Registration by check can be sent to Midwest Writing Center, 225 E. 2nd Street, Suite 303, Davenport, IA, 52801.
