UPDATE: Winter 2022

Students will continue to attend Tucson writing workshops at their scheduled times via video chat (with or without cameras enabled) or by calling in to the live chat with their phones. While classes continue to meet remotely, students from outside of the Tucson area are welcomed to register for classes with The Writers Studio Tucson branch.

Students taking Tucson workshops will submit their exercises electronically. During the video chat, students and teachers will respond to student work and discuss the next week’s exercise. Teachers will send students a link to the video chat and will provide support as needed. We hope you will continue to write and stay connected to our community during this time.

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 three 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.

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. ISAAC KIRKMAN, Tucson Advanced Workshop student
