Workshops

Workshops are divided into time spent in conversation and time spent writing and sharing. First, students talk as a group about what's going on in their lives: Their successes, their stresses, their inspiration. Then students write and share their work. The writing becomes either a complete diversion from stress or a way to process emotion. Sharing is optional! Everyone offers positive feedback. Classes are capped at six students, so classes are supportive and intimate. To register, please email Jennifer at youngwritersaustin@gmail.com or fill out a form on the Contact page.

"Under normal circumstances, the writing group is a great creative outlet. During rougher weeks, it's almost therapeutic. On days that have otherwise been boring or lonely, it's an opportunity to hang out with friends. Most importantly, it is the only place that I know of where I can say (and write) completely insane things and no one bats an eye."
