About our Workshops
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, novel, personal essay, poetry, and others. Most workshop sessions meet once a week on a weekday evening at Inprint House, 1520 W. Main. 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, as well as work outside of class that will entail reading the work of select published writers, critiquing the work of other workshop participants, and writing a piece to be workshopped by the class. Each participant will receive written comments from the instructor.
Workshops are limited in size to maintain an intimate workshop environment. Scroll below to read the workshop policies and procedures and cancellation policy.
