Take a Writing Workshop at The Center


Our writing workshop program—launched last year—has been a tremendous success and we are excited to continue the program, bringing you low-cost workshops led by celebrated and award-winning writers. 


We’re pleased to announce a roster of five exciting classes for fall 2014, including a special, one-season-only workshop with novelist Ann Packer, plus award-winning instructors such as Stefan Merrill Block, Gabriel Roth, Terese Svoboda, and Simon Van Booy. If you'd like more information about our writing workshops, please e-mail sara@centerforfiction.org.


Whether you’re a fledgling writer or an MFA graduate polishing your novel, you’ll find a perfect fit here. All workshops take place in the evening and starts are staggered throughout the season.
