Philadelphia Writers Workshop provides a fun, structured way to write fiction, poetry, non-fiction, memoir, essays, plays, and screenplays in the company of other writers.

Beginners, published authors, avid writers can…

  • Devote time to writing
  • Find or reclaim your unique voice
  • Experiment in a structured, non-competitive setting
  • Develop new or ongoing projects
  • Receive constructive feedback
  • Join the local writers’ community

The Tuesday Night Workshop is for writers who want to write during workshop and receive immediate feedback. Writers explore new topics, genres and forms, and submit short finished work for more detailed feedback once per session (sessions vary from four to ten weeks in length).

The Manuscript Workshop is for writers who are already working on longer writing projects of fiction, non-fiction, screenplays, and stage plays. The group reads and responds to two manuscripts per week and support each other with the particular issues that arise out of working on a full-length manuscript. The leader provides written comments for each participant, meets with writers privately, and brings in additional resources as applicable.
