Registration fee of $125 for the entire 3 days and a senior rate of $100 for ages 65 and up for a limited number of people. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to share your stories. Space is limited so register early. Sponsored by the W.I. Literary Festival.

A former Chicago Tribune columnist, Robert Wolf has roamed America for most of his life, writing his version of the American story and getting others to write theirs.  His primary mission is to create a literary mosaic of America that is written by people of all ages from all walks of life. The goal of these workshops, that have been held across the country, is to amass a body of writing that someday will resemble a collective autobiography of America. The writing workshop is geared for people of all ages, and while the practiced writer will find it useful, the workshop is designed with the amateur in mind.

Wolf's Free River Press was featured in 1995, on “CBS Sunday Morning”, and in 1999, Oxford University Press issued an anthology gathered from the first nine years of Free River Press publications, American Mosaic: Prose and Poetry by Everyday Folk. We hope you will want to take part in this amazing project.
