Ann Hood’s Writing Workshop
August 16 - August 23
WORKSHOP OVERVIEW: our workshop takes place on the grounds of the tenuta di Spannocchia outside of Rosia, Italy. We hold workshops by day and craft talks by night. Throughout the week we enjoy the entirely estate-raised/grown/produced food and wine Spannocchia has to offer. As far as our classes go, we divide our conference participants (usually 16-18) into two 50-page MSS workshop groups. 2015’s workshop leaders were the excellent Laura Lippman and Helen Schulman. We also hold a full length (~300 page) MSS workshop taught by Ann Hood herself. Please note that there is an additional fee for this workshop, as it involves full-length MSS. We will also have an additional faculty member available for private MSS consultations, cost to be arranged between the interested participant and faculty member. 2017’s MSS-reader was Laura Lippman. Previous faculty members have included Helen Schulman, Jane Hamilton, Anne LeClaire, Rand Richards Cooper, Laura Lippman, Bill Roorbach, Michael Ruhlman, John Searles, and Ann Hood herself.
