With over 100 workshops a year to choose from, we welcome writers of all skill levels and genres. Our workshops are designed to suit your schedule, with options in the morning, afternoons, and evenings. We also host several Saturday-only workshops and one-week writing-intensive programs throughout the year. You can learn more about our workshops by visiting our WORKSHOP page.


We are currently located in Westport, Connecticut and offer writing workshops in person and remotely via Zoom.

Let Westport Writers' Workshop help you discover and develop your own unique writing talent and voice. 

Our Mission

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

Our Philosophy

You can expect a supportive group led by an experienced instructor. You’ll write, read, and learn from each other.  Focus is always on the quality of the writing – not on the subject matter. Writing begets writing. The more you commit to your writing, to showing up for your writing group, the more you will write. By joining a community of writers, you will become a stronger writer and influence others to refine their craft. Our philosophy and practices are inspired by Amherst Writers & Artists and Pat Schneider's book, Writing Alone and With Others.
