Learn the Art and Craft of Creative Writing in West Lafayette

Learn the art and craft of writing in an intimate and dynamic environment

Our Mission

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. 

What our students say

"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. "

Classes & Coaching

Writing Fiction and Nonfiction Workshop


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. 

Poetry Workshop

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.

Craft Your Story: A Summer Camp for Writers and Illustrators

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.


Have you started a book? Interested in more one-on-one feedback for your work-in-progress? A Writing Coach might be just what you and your writing needs to maintain momentum.
