The Writing Institute

The institute supports Antioch College’s mission and Learning Outcomes by providing members of the College community with opportunities for focused study of the writing craft. Our programs include writing assessment and tutorials, as well as workshops in writing fiction, news, features, poetry, and creative, personal essays.

In the last year, the institute has sponsored visits and workshops by poet Ann Filemyr (A Healer’s Diary, Sunstone Press, 2012), writer and artist Nikki McClure (To Market, To Market, Abrams Books, 2011), journalists Liz F. Kay and John-John Williams (The Baltimore Sun), local author and Wright State professor Jeffery Alan John (A Bird in Your Hand, Lucid Books, 2010), and National Book Award winner Jaimy Gordon (Lord of Misrule, McPherson, 2010), the latter co-sponsored with The Antioch Review.
