MILITARY VETERANS PARTICIPATE IN HEMINGWAY-PFEIFFER WRITERS’ RETREAT
PIGGOTT, AR – Nine talented writers recently came together to hone their skills and form a bond at the annual writing retreat for military veterans. The event took place at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center (HPMEC) at the site where author Ernest Hemingway penned much of his iconic war novel, A Farewell to Arms.
This weekend retreat was funded through a partnership with the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Dr. Rob Lamm, professor of English at Arkansas State University, served as mentor for the retreat. Lamm, a mentor at other retreats at HPMEC, said, “This retreat is the highlight of my year. I get to work with talented writers of all sorts as they write about their experiences in the service.
