We are thrilled to present the Winter & Spring 2023 workshops in memoir, poetry, storytelling, screenwriting, literary translation, and much more!
At this time, we plan to hold all workshops in the QWF office, except for Deep Story Design and Book Publishing Explained for Writers, which will be held online via Zoom.
Workshops at the QWF Office will have up to two virtual slots for participants who can’t attend in person. If you cannot attend in person because of distance or disability, don’t hesitate to contact Riley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
