The Burlington Writers Workshop is a free creative writing workshop for all Vermonters. We're a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and our mission is to provide writers with free learning opportunities that help them develop as artists and professional writers. We host workshops in Burlington, Montpelier, and Middlebury. We also host occasional panel discussions, readings, and networking opportunities with experienced, professional writers. To ensure access for all, everything we do is free of charge.
Whether you've been writing for years or you're new to the craft, you will enjoy the company of our intelligent, passionate workshop members. We discuss fiction, creative nonfiction, journalism, poetry, drama, screenplays--if you've written it, we'll read it and provide feedback. Join us, sign up for a workshop, and enjoy! Please read "The Rules" before you attend (they're really simple and ensure that our discussions are productive and fun). Below are some Frequently Asked Questions.
How much does it cost? There is no charge. It's free! But you can make tax-deductible donations through PayPal.
I want to help with the creation of your annual anthology, The Best of the Burlington Writers Workshop, or your literary journal, Mud Season Review. How can I get involved? You must be a member of the workshop to help with these projects. That means you must join this group and provide feedback to your fellow writers. Once you're a member, you can participate, either by submitting work or editing or helping with the design.
I've heard the BWW is partnered with local organizations. Is that true? Yes! BWW writers provide blog entries for The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. We've worked with Burlington City Arts in writing about art. And we're always open to partnering with other organizations that want to provide opportunities for BWW writers to showcase their work.
