Literary Mama is proud to support the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop, which will take place October 20–22, 2022, in Dayton, Ohio. Seats are still available for this in-person workshop, and there’s a virtual option too.
From their website:
“The Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop has been dubbed the ‘Woodstock of Humor.’ Another writer describes it as a ‘utopia’ for writers—one ‘that only appears every other year, out of the mist, on the edge of the Great Miami River in Dayton, Ohio (like Brigadoon).’ “
“The 2022 workshop will feature New York Times‘ bestselling authors, Saturday Night Live legends, Emmy Award winners, Thurber Prize winners, a Moth GrandSLAM winner, the author of the Bible (The New Comedy Bible, that is), screenwriters, and a slew of celebrated comedians and authors. With her special blend of grace and humor, stand-up comedian Leighann Lord will emcee.”
Literary Mama‘s Creative Nonfiction Editorial Assistant, Kristen Mulrooney, won a humor residency sponsored by Bombeck, and Teri Rizvi, a former Literary Mama contributor, is both founder and director of the workshop.
