For 20 years, the Hurston/Wright Summer Writers Workshop has offered a safe space for writers in intensive workshop sessions and master classes.
Workshops are led by award-winning writers who are influencing today’s literature. The program features critiques, craft talks, writing time and public readings.
Hurston/Wright workshops serve emerging and experienced writers who are starting projects, developing projects or seeking to polish projects. More than a thousand writers have participated in workshops since the first session in 1996.
Hosted in the nation’s capital, the program allows writers to explore storytelling in one of the world’s most intriguing and inspiring cities.
Hurston/Wright is a community that supports you and your writing life.
