The Tucson branch operates like our flagship New York City school—with the same workshop model designed to help students discover and nurture their own voices by “trying on” many approaches to fiction and poetry. The Writers Studio Tucson welcomes students at all stages, from those who have only dreamed of writing fiction or poetry to those with MFAs hungry for additional serious, ongoing instruction. Students provide the desire to write and the willingness to learn, and we provide the structure, the technical know-how, the professional feedback and the nurturing community to enable them to reach their full potential. Tucson offers four levels of workshops, as well as readings and other public events. Branch teachers receive the same rigorous training as our New York City and Online teachers. Students who travel frequently or have irregular work schedules are welcome to move back and forth among any of the on-site branches and the online workshops.

Tucson Workshop and Intermediate students attend class at St. Francis in the Foothills, 4625 E. River Road in Tucson, Arizona. 

Tucson Advanced and Master Workshop students attend their workshop at their scheduled time via Google Meet and submit their exercises electronically. 

During the discussion, students and teachers will respond to student work and discuss the next week’s exercise. For more information, please contact Phil Ivory at Subscribe to our newsletter and receive news about readings, publications, free workshops, and other literary offerings.

I had been experiencing 10 years of writer’s block, and after one year in the Tucson branch of The Writers Studio, I published my first piece.
