Solstice Faculty: A Veritable Who’s Who of Writers

Solstice is proud to introduce you to some of the best writing talent anywhere:

1. Ann Edwards Cannon

RETREAT TOPIC: Writing Columns and Blogs

Ann is the writer of a well-known column in the Salt Lake Tribune and the author of a widely-read blog, The Writers’ Corner (And Also What I Ate Today). She’s also the author of several novels, children’s books, and essays. If you’re familiar with Ann’s style, you know you’re in for a good time.

2. John Bennion

RETREAT TOPIC: Nature and Outdoor Writing

John is a creative writing professor who specializes in nature writing. He often takes his writers on hiking expeditions where adventure (and good stories) ensue. John has published books for both adults and young adults alike. If you love the outdoors, John will teach you how to put it into words.

3. Dean Hughes

RETREAT TOPIC: Writing Nonfiction for Children

As someone who has made a career of writing (Dean has published over 100 books) this is a class not to be missed. Combining his wit and vast experience, Dean will offer extraordinary insight into what it takes to write for children.

4. Louise Plummer

RETREAT TOPIC: Writing Memoirs

Louise has published in both the fiction and non-fiction markets. She has used her own experiences to create works that are witty, original and thought-provoking. She spent many years as a writing professor, but her style is anything but “professorial.” If you’re looking to write your personal or family history, this may just be the class for you.

So there you have it! With an all-star line-up like that, Solstice promises to be a dynamic, entertaining, and highly informative writing conference. And there are still a few weeks left to get early bird pricing – so don’t wait any longer. Sign up today!

    • Hi Lauren,
      We will post a schedule soon. I can tell you that the class you sign up for will be held during each of the mornings, with break-out sessions in the afternoons. Of course, the the first day of your class will begin in the afternoon. We hope to see you there!
