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.

This year we also offered partial scholarships to 25 writers who needed to write but did not have the financial means. Our goal is to continue to grow the service arm of our organization, and to offer the gift of writing and workshops to more organizations and communities who could benefit from its healing powers. WWW gives thanks to YOU; if you would like to offer thanks in return, we would be most appreciative! No donation amount is too small.

Getting nurtured and validated both by the instructor and other participants gave me a sense of feeling replenished and of having “my cup” filled – it is hard to give to patients and clients when our own well is empty and this class definitely helped me to keep giving to those I care for.
