In Your Words: Reflections on 2012 AWW

Here's what some participants, faculty, and speakers are saying about the 27th annual Antioch Writers' Workshop:

On her blog, Laura Moe's Writing Blog, Laura Moe writes about her experience at the workshop and 2012 faculty member, Les Edgerton
We go to conferences to make connections with other like-minded souls. My friends and family don't mind that I write, but they don't care about the process. Only other writers understand suffering over the word, fretting over using ‘mysterious’ vs. ‘esoteric’ in a sentence or line."

On the tumblr, The Life of Antonia, Antonia-Grazia writes,
I don’t want to get up at six o’clock in the morning, but I am unbelievably jazzed to go back tomorrow and the days after and just sink into the ocean of awesomeness that is this seminar. And the great part about it, even though most writers are introverts, and there have to be at least a hundred people attending, we can all be extroverts together. You can sit down next to whoever, you don’t have to know their name, who cares, and just say, “What kind of stuff do you write?” Instantly you’re in.

Did you write about your experience at the 2012 Antioch Writers' Workshop on your blog? Send us an email to let us know, and we'll link to it on ours.
