What we're about

Philadelphia's Creative Writing Workshop (w/ Toho Publishing (http://www.tohopub.com)) is for writers who wish to get feedback, and to provide a nurturing atmosphere for creative endeavors. First hour is for writing and second hour is for reading and critiquing- for those who wish to share ongoing works. Open to all.

Currently, we're meeting at Frankie Ann's Bar and Grill in Fairmount.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING (ABOUT OUR SHOPS)

It felt good to be writing together with fellow writers, to share observations, to have the opportunity to read my work out loud. . . . The class was fun! The time went very quickly and stimulated my writing through the week.

— Kathy A.

The group was very motivated and invested.

— Al O.

It amazes me how diverse the styles were and how simple prompts elicited such deep thoughts and expressions . . . I also really enjoyed this group of people. The group was very kind and encouraging.

— Marian F.

Each participant [was encouraged] in their craft of writing and exploration of yet-to-be discovered talents.

— Joe V.

Wednesday Writing Workshop

Mr. Jay’s Place Bar & Restaurant

Welcome to our Wednesday Writing Workshop in partnership with Toho Publishing! We meet at Mr Jay's Place (1700 Fairmount Ave) in the upstairs venue. We will be meeting here every other Wednesday evening from 6PM-8:30PM. For the first hour or so, we write. No prompts, no instructions, nothing! Work on whatever it is that sparks your interest, be it your story, a poem, or an article... or something completely unique! Then, for the rest of our time, we'll read our writing for constructive feedback. This is meant to be a positive atmosphere for writers who want honest feedback while feeling encouraged by their fellow artists. Hope to see you there!
