|The Houston Press has voted Inprint Writers Workshops as the “Best Place for Aspiring Writers” in the city. Participants have said:
"These workshops really jump started my writing life."
“Inprint is a class act…it has been a godsend to me and many other writers and teachers.”
“Thanks so much for running these outstanding workshops. Inprint is a gift to the community.”
“I have had workshops at the graduate level. This was as good as any of them."
Three times a year, Inprint offers non-credit Writers Workshops. These workshops are considered Houston’s “Best Place for Aspiring Writers” (Houston Press) and are led by accomplished local authors, including students, alumni, and faculty from the prestigious University of Houston Creative Writing Program. Workshops are open to individuals of all backgrounds, including those who are exploring creative writing for the first time, as well as aspiring writers who want to prepare work for publication.
Workshops are conducted in various genres, including fiction, memoir, creative journaling, novel, personal essay, poetry, and others. Most workshop sessions meet once a week on a weekday evening at Inprint House, 1520 W. Main. Inprint's Teachers as Writers Workshops are typically held on Saturdays during the school year. Fall and winter/spring workshops meet for ten weeks, summer workshops run for 8 weeks.
All workshops are modeled on graduate level creative writing courses, and may include short in-class writing assignments to jumpstart the writing process, outside readings of literary masters, and most importantly, time to constructively critique each participant’s own writing, with written comments from the instructor. Workshops are limited in size to maintain an intimate workshop environment. Click here to read the workshop policies and procedures.
