TWC's weekly workshops
inspire, support and encourage writers
at every stage and age.

for children & teens
our innovative approach uses movement, music, role-playing, tactile observation and group dynamics to actively engage students
in the creative experience of writing.

for adults
morning and evening classes, mixed genre
and specialized workshops. Ongoing critique, community and inspiration move each writer toward their own best work.

TWC's instructors
are all professionals who know
their way around words.

On March 16, TWC's teen student, Adam W., won a National Gold Medal in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards for his poetry portfolio, Midnight Bird. This is the second year in a row that a TWC student was won gold on the national level in this prestigous youth competition.


In total, TWC's students received three regional Gold Keys, two Silver Keys and two Honorable Mentions, along with Adam's national medal. We're very proud of all the TWC students who submitted and were acknowledged for their excellent work.
