Greenhouse: The First 5 Years of the Rustbelt Roethke Writers’ Workshop
Edited by Judith Kerman & Amee Schmidt

The Rustbelt Roethke Writers’ Workshop/Retreat was inspired by the work and life of Pulitzer-Prize-winning poet Theodore Roethke (1908-1963), who was born and brought up in Saginaw, Michigan. The Workshop has met each July since 2002, providing experienced writers with a comfortable, egalitarian atmosphere of peer (teacherless) workshops and public readings. This anthology was published during the centennial year of Roethke’s birth as part of the year-long Roethke Centennial celebration.
