Writers' Workshops

Writers’ workshops are open for registration!

Great writers aren’t made overnight. At the Lyceum we invest in the creative process over time, encouraging young people to see themselves as writers, and to see writing as an essential way to express themselves and interact with the world.

Spring sessions reflect a $10 contribution towards publication costs of Zines.

Great writers aren’t made overnight. At the Lyceum we invest in the creative process over time, encouraging young people to see themselves as writers, and to see writing as an essential way to express themselves and interact with the world.

Our programs focus on nurturing a playfulness with language, allowing students to develop confidence in their abilities and instilling a passion for the written word. We find that once these three elements are present, students become invested in their own writing, passionately discussing principles of strong writing, and actively participating in the editing process. This process allows us to teach to the needs of the group.

Writers’ Workshops at the Lyceum are an enjoyable opportunity to create great writing in a supportive community.
