“Being around a good teacher inspires me to inspire my students.”


“I feel much more validated in my writing …. being a learner once again has made me much more empathetic with my students and with the learning process.”


“I know that my work has improved. I have already adapted many of the exercises to my own classes.”

Started in 1996, Inprint’s Teachers-as-Writers Workshops provide tuition-free creative writing workshops for Houston-area K–12 educators. These workshops, offered as part of Inprint’s Writers Workshops, provide teachers an encouraging, intimate, and engaging environment to focus on improving their own creative writing capacities.

These workshops are led by accomplished local authors, including students, alumni, and faculty from the prestigious University of Houston Creative Writing Program. Workshops are open to K–12 educators 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, personal essay, poetry, and others. Workshop sessions meet once a week for three hours at Inprint House, 1520 W. Main. Each workshop usually meets for 6 – 8 weeks on Saturday mornings during the school year and on weekday evenings or afternoons during the summer. The intensive format of the workshop meets on a weekend over one or two days. Registrations are filled on a first come first served basis, and are limited in number to provide a supportive and accessible workshopping environment.

Registration for all workshops can only be done online through the Inprint website. To read the Inprint Writers Workshops and Teachers-As-Writers Workshops policies and registration procedures, click here.
