Community Creative Writing Workshops

The MFA Program at FAU is proud to offer Community Creative Writing Workshops each semester. Classes vary, but we typically offer: Fiction, Creative Nonfiction/Memoir, and Poetry. We are also in the process of developing a Youth Community Workshop. These classes are workshop based. This means that you will read and offer comments on each other's work. Classes are taught by senior level MFA graduate students. Instructors will provide comments on your work and lead class discussion so that you get the most out of your workshop experience.

No experience is required to attend! We encourage writers of all backgrounds and skill to apply, from the seasoned memoirist to the novice poet, you will benefit from becoming a part of a writerly community.

This Fall 2021 we will be offering an online, Mixed-Prose (fiction & creative nonfiction/memoir) Community Creative Writing Workshop. The class will begin October 19th, and will run each Tuesday from 6pm – 8pm for eight weeks. The non-credit class is virtual and will meet over Zoom.
