QWF Writing Workshops help participants develop writing with the support of an experienced professional writer-facilitator and feedback from peers.
QWF runs two regular seasons of writing workshops per year, in Spring (March to May) and Fall (October to December). Registration for the Spring workshops opens in January, and for the Fall workshops in August. We offer workshops in a wide range of genres, including long- and short-form fiction, memoir, narrative nonfiction, poetry, playwriting, screenwriting, children’s and/or young adult literature, and career-related topics.
We occasionally run single workshops at other times of year – keep an eye on the site and listings!
We’re always looking for new workshop leaders, and for new ideas for workshops, so if you have a workshop that you’d like to propose, or that you’d like to see QWF organize, please write to us.
