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.

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
