Workshops



Workshops range from the playful to the practical, and are taught by volunteer writers, artists, educators, and publishing professionals.

Please note: Due to a high interest in this program and our commitment to keeping class sizes small, workshop attendance is determined by lottery. Once the lottery has been drawn, you will be notified of your status. Please only sign up for a workshop if you can make every session, as we generally have a lengthy wait list. If admitted to a workshop, we’ll require a $25 refundable deposit to hold your spot.

Through sharing your favorite places and writing letters, you’ll get to learn about two cities for the price of one and be published in a joint anthology. Sound like an adventure you’d like to join us for? Register today.

Ever wonder what kinds of crazy creatures dwell in the depths of the sea?  Love playing board games but always wanted to make up your own rules? Combine your interests and come join us to explore life in the ocean and create your own board game about the trials and tribulations of tiny creatures in the sea!  Over four evening sessions we’ll be exploring characters in the ocean, figuring out how they interact with each other, mapping out your own game rules and mechanics, and turning this into your very own snazzy board game!  By the end you’ll take home your own complete board game to play with friends and amaze them all with your creative genius and master mind strategies.
