Veterans writing retreat set at Hemingway-Pfeiffer

PIGGOTT -- Acclaimed author and Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemingway's studio at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center, an Arkansas State University Heritage Site, is now the site of an all-expense-paid weekend writing retreat for military veterans Sept. 15-17.

Applications are being accepted until Aug. 25. Hemingway penned portions of "A Farewell to Arms" at the home of his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer, in Piggott in 1928.

The retreat offers veterans from or living in Arkansas the opportunity to work on personal creative writing, share their work, receive feedback and interact with others interested in writing. The retreat is structured to be interactive, a time when friendships are formed, craft is honed and creativity is enhanced.

Email adamlong@AState.edu or call the museum at 870-598-3487 to receive an application. The retreat will be held in partnership with the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
