Welcome to Rose Writers!
Rose Writers workshops are the perfect place to begin or continue your creative writing journey. Why? Because we follow AWA guidlines and practices that create a safe and encouraging environment. Writers are encouraged to take risks, explore their creativity, and share their work.
If you have never been in a creative writing workshop, or you're a refugee from a less than supportive experience, come check out Rose Writers. What we do and how we do it will suprise and delight you. I promise!
Since 2008 it has been my joy and pleasure to help writers grow as artists. Past participants have gone on to MFA programs, publication, fellowships, and some have even started their own writing groups!
The 2016 schedule is posted and registration is open. Workshops fill up fast so please register early.
Thank you and call or email your questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
