The organization will be renamed Antioch Writers’ Workshop at the University of Dayton, but will maintain its independent nonprofit status. The organization, which will relocate to UD’s English department, formerly aligned with Antioch University Midwest from 2009 to 2016. It was founded in 1986 and incorporated in 1991.
“When the possibility of working closely with the University of Dayton arose, we recognized increased opportunities for serving the writing community in the Dayton region and beyond,” Kate Geiselman, AWW’s acting president, said in a release. “The board agreed we’d be remiss not to explore developing a partnership with UD.”
