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

Fall workshop signups begin Monday, Sept. 25! Sign up through the links in the workshop descriptions below. Workshops listed as "Waitlist Signup" are FULL, but you may use our registration form to add your name to the wait list. 

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.

Except where noted, workshops take place at BFI Headquarters, accessed through the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Store.
