and was asked to share it with you all. I don't know anything more about it than that.

Dear Writers,

As the Director of the Martha's Vineyard Institute of Creative
Writing, I am delighted to announce that the MVICW is now open for
registration and scholarship applications for the 2012 Summer Writing
Program. This year we have an amazing line-up for faculty, including
award-winning poets, Catherine Pierce and Marcus Wicker, and
award-winning short story and novel writers, Michael Kardos and
Phong Nguyen (editor of the nationally acclaimed literary journal, Pleiades).
The Summer Writing Program will run from July 15th-20th in
Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts (http://mvicw.com)

The MVICW was founded in order to give writers the opportunity to
develop their craft amongst established authors. The Institute offers
a comprehensive week-long focus on writing, providing writers with the
necessary time to devote to their art. Each summer, the institute
invites published authors and poets, literary journal editors, and
university creative writing faculty from around the country to lead
writing workshops, work one-on-one with individuals, and provide the
necessary tips and tools for editing and publishing their work.

MVICW is happy to be able to provide merit-based and need-based
scholarships this year. The scholarships cover between 50-100% of
tuition costs.

As well, the MVICW is offering The MVICW High School Writers
Collaborative, a summer writing camp for all students in 9th-12th
grade. This one-week summer camp runs from July 9th-13th at The
Martha s Vineyard Charter School. Students between 14-19 years old
will come together to learn poetry and prose alongside skilled
teachers, university professors, and published writers.

A detailed description of the 2012 Summer Writing Program and The
MVICW High School Writers Collaborative, along with scholarship
application and registration information can be found at its website,
http://mvicw.com

I hope you will join us this summer on the Vineyard!

Sincerely,
Alexander Weinstein: Program Director
The Martha's Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing

I organize a live writing workshop on meetup.com ( Metrowest Writers Circle if anyone in the greater Boston area is interested) and they sent me the same message.

I know Viable Paradise also takes place on Martha's Vineyard. I wonder if there is any link between the two.

Shouldn't a "greater Boston area" writing workshop be Metroeast? [Wink]
Just saying.

Ha, but I live and the workshop takes place in the region known as Metrowest - the towns west of Boston (those between Worcester and Newton along the Mass Pike)
