We offer a wide range of free evening and weekend workshops designed to foster creativity, strengthen writing skills, and provide students with a forum for executing projects they might not otherwise have the support to undertake. Workshops range from the playful to the practical, and all are taught by volunteer writers, artists, educators, and publishing professionals in our community.


We now offer creative writing workshops in multiple spaces in southeast Michigan — in our writing lab on Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor, our writing lab on Winder Street in Detroit’s Eastern Market, and in many community partner spaces like the Ypsilanti District Library.

Online registration for is required for most of our workshops, although some are offered as drop-in — please see our current schedule for details.
