Whether it's poetry, hip-hop, personal essay, or fantasy fiction, our workshops challenge young storytellers to think differently about writing and the spoken word. An incredible cadre of writers and artists lead our workshops, divulging the secrets of their trades in the process. The kind of workshop offered dictates its length of time and duration. A workshop may be held on one full afternoon on a weekend day, or it may happen over a span of time, like a series of four afternoons after school.
No matter the subject or genre of writing covered, our workshops are always fun, even uproariously so, like when Patty pulls out her drums or Molly Haley leads a round of “what, what?” They're also always productive. We like to send our writers out the door with their craft, whether a college essay or a notebook full of new song lyrics or a bound book.

Please double check the listed dates and times and arrange transportation first - your full participation in all facets of the workshop is expected with your commitment. We reserve spots on a first come, first serve basis so please be sure that you can attend the full slate of classes before signing up.
All of our workshops are free, but individual donations to help run these programs are always appreciated - your assistance allows us to reach more young writers in our area.
