Creative Writing Workshops

Our writing workshops facilitate a whimsical, creative, and collaborative experience between students and local authors and artists. We aim to keep writing prompts playful and constructive while our young authors work to create original pieces around a theme. Whether it's a one-time event or a biweekly meeting over several months, our goal is to bring exciting and cross-genre creativity to students of all ages for free. 

This year, we partnered with High School for Recording Arts for an eight-week podcasting workshop. MOI supported students in writing their podcasts, then they recorded the finished products as a podcast. Other upcoming workshop ideas are in the works, too! We're working with Pillsbury United Communities this summer to offer programs and writing workshops to their students. We'll also be partnering with courageous heARTS for a graphic novel workshop.

In addition, we're excited to be partnering with South High School next year for our first year of satellite programming at a Writers' Room. We will have a dedicated staff member on site to offer South students MOI's signature one-on-one writing support, conveniently located at their own school.
