The Peripatetic Writing Workshop, now in its 29th year, heads back to the west coast of Florida for its fiction/nonfiction workshop February 3-10, 2020.
NYU teachers and authors Maureen Brady and Martha Hughes lead the program featuring daily workshops, stimulating writing exercises, structured hours for writing and optional tutorials.
Martha Hughes founded the Peripatetic on Shelter Island in 1991 in response to writers' needs of a quiet time and place for writing, plus caring and constructive feedback of their work by excellent editors and like-minded peers. Since then in keeping with its name, the Peripatetic has moved from state to state and country to country, meeting twice-annually in such diverse locations as Achill Island, Ireland; Anna Maria Island, Florida; Antigua, Guatemala; Siracusa, Sicily; Woodstock, NY; Verona, Italy; St Simon's Island, Georgia; Tybee Island, Gerogia, and Deal, England.
The location may change but what remains the same year after year is the stimulating atmosphere and warm camaraderie created by a group of serious writers sharing work and writing concerns.
“The writers were not only talented, but also terrific people, fun and pleasant to experience Deal with. The writing exercises were incredibly helpful." Maria Ostrowsky, Deal, Kent, UK, 2017
