Every summer I spend a week working as a writing coach at the Collegeville Institute at St. John’s University in Minnesota. The week, called Apart and Yet a Part, is for experienced writers with a project that has a spiritual component. The participants spend their days writing on their own and their evenings together in conversation and fellowship. I work with the writers individually to help them strengthen their work or talk through questions about the writing process or being a writer. All of the participating writers’ expenses are paid, including their airfare, and they’re housed in apartments spread along the shore of a lake.
If you or someone you know might be interested in participating, this year’s Apart and Yet a Part week will take place June 14-20. You’ll find more information and instructions for applying here. The application deadline is January 25, 2016.
