Started in 1996, Inprint Teachers-as-Writers Workshops provide tuition-free creative writing workshops for Houston-area K–12 educators. These workshops provide teachers with an encouraging and engaging environment to focus on improving their own creative writing skills.
Courses are led by accomplished local authors, including students, alumni, and faculty from the prestigious University of Houston Creative Writing Program. Workshops are open to 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 more. Most workshop sessions meet once a week, online via Zoom or in-person at Inprint House, and run for 6-10 weeks.
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.
Courses are limited in size to maintain an intimate workshop environment. To review Inprint’s workshop registration policies, click here.
