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.
