Murphy Writing of Stockton University Presents
Winter Poetry & Prose Getaway
January 13-16, 2017
Stockton Seaview Hotel
Galloway, NJ (Atlantic City area)
The Winter Poetry & Prose Getaway is a conference where educators hone their writing skills and expand their teaching strategies. It was founded on the belief that when writers leave behind the distractions of their busy lives to gather in an encouraging community, they are able to make important breakthroughs in their art. Now in its 24th year, the Winter Getaway will be held at Stockton Seaview Hotel in Galloway, NJ over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend.
- Engage with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards by practicing different types of writing for different purposes and audiences.
- Choose from creative writing workshops in fiction, memoir, nonfiction, songwriting or poetry where they will read, write, revise and share their writing.
- Enjoy challenging and supportive sessions and insightful feedback.
- Earn 18 hours of PD credit.
Workshops are available for both beginning and experienced creative writers. We firmly believe that every teacher—no matter the grade level or subject—is a teacher of writing, and that teachers who write become better teachers of writing.
South Jersey teachers may be eligible to have their districts pay their tuition when they register with ETTC hours.
“The Beginning Your Novel workshop helped me grow as a writer, teacher and person. I would encourage anyone needing inspiration to attend whether they consider themselves a writer or not.”
