Events We Offer

 

The Writers' Loft offers a wide variety of events, from multi-week classes and craft chats to panel discussions and group write-ins. Here's a sampling of the events we offer -- and check out our list of upcoming programs!

 

  • Classes: These are multi-week opportunities for you to dive into the nuts and bolts of writing and illustrating. Past classes have focused on writing novels and editing and revising your work.

  • Workshops: Want a working session? Our workshops give you the opportunity to learn AND put your new learning to use right away!

  • Craft Chats: These sessions the craft of writing, illustrating, and getting your work published.

  • Panel Discussions: We bring together authors and other publishing professionals to talk about a specific topic in an informal setting.

  • Agent & Editor Sessions: Publishing professionals lead a session on a specific topic, or on publishing in general, and usually offer a personalized critique to every attendee. 

  • Write-Ins: Every month, we hold one or more write-ins -- quiet time to focus on your writing and editing, and breaks for snacks or lunch.

  • Mentoring: Our members have deep knowledge of writing, illustrating, publishing, and technology, and we love to share what we know! Contact us if you want to pick our brains on anything writing-related, and we will do our best to find you a Loft member who can help!

  • Book Parties: We love to celebrate our successes! We hold book parties for our members who have had their works published, and we also gather as a community for fun events throughout the year.
