At the Lafayette Writers' Studio in West Lafayette we believe in the transformative power of stories. We are passionate about reading and writing and offer a variety of high-quality creative writing courses with personalized attention.
"The Lafayette Writers' Studio classes I've taken have built not only my skills as a writer--they have increased my confidence in my own style and helped me find my voice. I've become part of a local community of writers. The time spent workshopping my writing has proven invaluable, offering me peer review and feedback I have used to revise and strengthen my work. I can't recommend the classes highly enough. "
Writers need one another for feedback and community, but also to generate ideas and learn from one another. In this workshop you will study published work in depth and then apply this understanding to create thoughtful and compelling stories and essays of your own.
While our poems often begin in the solitude of our own minds, sharing our poems with one another helps us to better understand the effect of our writing and the growth that is possible in the next draft. In this workshop writers will study a local poet's work in depth, and then apply this knowledge to creat poems of your own that are both fresh and compelling.
Writers and Illustrators ages 10 and older will have the opportunity to explore the amazing, fascinating and fun world of writing and illustrating a story of their own design. In the process we will generate a variety of stories from 140-character Twitter stories to monologues while also discovering the best methods to illustrate such unique forms.
