Community Writing Center

Writing Workshops

We offer a wide range of writing workshops here at the Community Writing Center. Explore a variety of writing topics in theme-based classes. Past workshops include: Letters to the Editor, Poetry, Memoir, Editing Tips, College Application Essays, Journaling and Creative Writing. Workshops are created in response to community requests and are taught by our talented Writing Assistants. If there's a workshop you'd like us to offer in the future, please let us know by email:

Most workshops take place at the Community Writing Center. We try to keep the cost of workshops as low as possible, and are able to offer some for free through partnerships and grant funding. Fees can be waived for financial hardship. Otherwise, donations are always welcome. Due to limited space, it is necessary to register in advance if you plan to attend a workshop. Registration will close one hour prior to the scheduled event. Registrants who choose to not to attend should call to cancel one week prior to the workshop; after this time payments are non-refundable.
