Writers workshop closing after 33 years

Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The Antioch Writers’ Workshop at the University of Dayton will close its doors this year, after 33 years.

The workshop offers creative writing workshops and year-round literary retreats for writers in all genres.

Author TJ Turner, president of the program’s board of trustees, says the workshop is no longer financially sustainable and private support hasn’t made up for declining enrollment.

The workshop began in 1986 at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, roughly 20 miles northeast of Dayton. It was aligned with Antioch University Midwest from 2009 to 2016.

Two years ago, the workshop entered a partnership with the University of Dayton, which provided classroom and office space.
