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.

One way to effect change in this challenging world is to use writing as a tool for advocacy. Op-eds, reaction pieces, and calls to action can all draw attention to subjects you feel passionate about, and amplify the important work of others. If you’re looking for new ways to make a difference with your writing, join us.

 

Advance Registration is strongly recommended.
