Creative Writing Workshop

A Class for Adults

Give and receive feedback on creative writing in a supportive community of like-minded writers. Stories for children and teens are especially welcome, but students may turn in any type of fiction or creative nonfiction, for any age group. This class may occasionally include brief lessons, discussions, or exercises based on the students’ interests or needs, but the primary focus will be on critiquing classmates’ work. Whether you’re entirely new to creative writing, are an experienced writer looking for deadlines and encouragement, or you have a novel that you’d like workshopped before querying agents, this class is for you.
