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 eight exciting classes for fall 2014, including a special, one-season-only workshop with novelist Ann Packer; a four-session boot camp on revision taught by 2013 Emerging Writer Fellow Courtney Zoffness; a YA-themed workshop from acclaimed author and One Teen Story editor Patrick Ryan; plus award-winning instructors such as Stefan Merrill Block, Jessica Francis Kane, 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. 

 

PLEASE NOTE: To help accommodate our planning schedule, workshops must be signed up for at least a week in advance.
