On Saturday June 1, Paul will be holding a Creative Writing Retreat at Montserrat College of Art. The day will consist of morning writing from prompts, an afternoon receiving a critique of their work and an evening in lively discussion with a panel of writers who publish poetry, memoir, fiction and biography. The retreat will be led by the core faculty of creative writers at Montserrat including Erin Dionne and Colleen Michaels.

Whether participants are novelists looking to jump start a summer goal of finishing those last—or first—chapters, poets hoping to find inspiration in a new setting or visual artists eager to test the medium of text, Montserrat’s Saturday retreat is designed to help writers of all levels move forward in their work. This course makes a wonderful companion to the Shockingly Good Book Arts course, during the week of June 24. There will also be classes focused in metal sculpture, knitting, film, acrylic, collage, portraiture, performance art, woodblock printing, comics and mixed media.

Also, Pauls short fiction 11 PM at Star City has been selected as a finalist for the 2012 BEST OF THE NET ANTHOLOGY. It was originally published and nominated by the online journal Apple Valley Review edited by Leah Browning.
