WELCOME WRITERS

We are so happy you've found us! We believe that a writer is someone who writes. This is a place for writers to thrive and grow. In our creative writing workshops, you'll find a supportive group led by an experienced instructor. You’ll write, read, and learn from each other. We offer weekly workshops five times a year, and one-time workshops, and publishing seminars throughout the year. 

**Our Late Fall workshops, one-time workshops and special events are open - please reach out if you'd like to join any open classes already in progress, or would like to be added to our waitlist for any classes already filled!

We currently have some workshops back in person at our Westport, CT location, but many of our workshops, readings, and events are currently offered via online on ZOOM.

OUR MISSION

The Westport Writers' Workshop is an independent literary arts center offering enriching, supportive creative writing classes, as well as literary readings to the local public in Connecticut. Our organization also provides free writing workshops to underserved populations in their own communities.

OUR WORKSHOPS

Our weekly workshops are limited to seven writers, which allows the group to bond and grow together. Our smaller workshops also allow each writer to have ample time to provide and receive feedback.
