Two emerging humor writers will receive free registration, travel and hotel expenses for the April 2-4, 2020, Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, where they will spend an additional two weeks at the University of Dayton Marriott Hotel to work on their writing projects.
Sponsored by the University of Dayton — the alma mater of legendary humorist Erma Bombeck — A Hotel Room of One’s Own: The Erma Bombeck | Anna Lefler Humorist-in-Residence Program gives two emerging comedy writers the opportunity to step away from their regular routines to live and work as full-time writers. Where? At the University of Dayton Marriott, of course. That’s the idea behind “A Hotel Room of One’s Own” — private, uninterrupted time for two writers to dive into their comedy projects without restrictions or responsibilities. It’s the luxury of time, and an experience that can change a career. Plus room service! Applications will be accepted Sept. 3-24, 2019. Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry and best-selling novelist Adriana Trigiani will select the two winners.
