Writers Working: A Petworth Library Writers Workshop

Next date: Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018, 7 p.m. (see all dates)

The Petworth Library holds the writers workshop, Writers Working, on alternating Tuesdays. To inquire about the workshops, please send an email or call 202-243-1187. 

The Petworth Library's writerworkshops are made up of people from a variety of backgrounds and writing levels: beginners, veteran wordsmiths and emeriti. We write creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry and scripts.

Unlike pay-for-play workshops or academic workshops, participants of community workshops have the opportunity to forge sustained relationships with the membership, allowing for peers to get to know each other and take pieces being workshopped seriously. This works in contrast to many workshops which frequently involve participants placing their personal opinion over what's valuable to the piece or the writer. Come join a community group and we can help each other put our brains to pen and our pens to paper.
