The Antioch Writers’ Workshop (AWW) is excited to share the news that it has entered into a new partnership with the University of Dayton that will allow the organization to attract more creative writing students from across the region for its programs, provide economical campus housing for summer participants and expand its reach.
AWW offers creative writing workshops, seminars and retreats year-round to poetry, fiction and nonfiction writers in the region and from throughout the United States. Effective March 2017, the workshop will maintain an office in the University of Dayton’s department of English and will hold its spring and summer programs on the residential campus.
Now known as the Antioch Writers’ Workshop at the University of Dayton, the organization, which held programs in partnership with Antioch University Midwest from 2009-2016, will maintain its independent nonprofit status and will continue to hold its schedule of programs without interruption.
