This is a remote program. It will take place in a synchronous live format while using Zoom in EST, with asynchronous elements using our Canvas online learning management software and Google Suite.

Creative Writers Workshop provides an opportunity for you to develop writing skills in an intensive online program that offers synchronous courses in fiction, prose, scriptwriting, comedy writing, the graphic novel, and slam poetry. During this five-week program, you’ll write, workshop, revise and compile a portfolio of your work. You’ll attend synchronous (Zoom) faculty readings, open mic nights, and a literary hangout where you’ll get together with other writers to discuss the progress of your work. The asynchronous (Canvas) elements of the program may include video lectures of course reading materials to view at your convenience and a discussion board onto which you’ll post drafts of your essays, poems, scripts, and stories to be reviewed by other writers. At the completion of the program, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a synchronous final reading to demonstrate your sharpened writing skills. 

Creative Writers Workshop is offered as a noncredit or credit program.
