Workshops

Our creative and expository writing workshops spark imagination and teach skills. In our workshops, reluctant writers and aspiring authors can write dystopian fiction, poems in forts, college entrance essays, and more.

Workshops

Our Summer workshop schedule goes live on Monday, May 5! It's a little different this time: Every workshop has its own registration form, which you can access in the description of the class. Register online below, or in person, now! 

This summer we have two great drop-in programs that don't require registration: The tested and true All-City Comics Club and the new, creatively named All-City Writers Club! You can drop into these workshops without registering, but please do us a favor and RSVP at the links below so we know how many pencils to sharpen. 

Except where noted, workshops take place at BFI Headquarters, accessed through the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Store. We post all workshops here and send out a notice to our constituents when we add something new. Keep tabs on us on Facebook and Twitter, too.
