About the Tucson Advanced Workshops

Students come into the Advanced Workshop with plenty of experience and sophistication. Here they take on the next challenge: honing the skills and developing the healthy habits that will sustain them throughout their writing lives. They develop new self-awareness about their own internal process, as well as increasing control over the “voice” that’s unique to them and over their narrative choices. Students at this level continue to do exercises from the Craft Class, but they also routinely complete poems and stories to submit for publication, and work toward creating a book-length manuscript. Teachers in the school also participate in this workshop.

Writers Studio Tucson classes meet once a week for eight weeks at Storyland, 1202 E. Broadway Blvd., Tucson, AZ 85719. For more information, please contact Renee Bibby: 520-591-8795 or

Open only to students who have completed The Writers Studio Tucson Workshop and upon the recommendation of the teacher.

Students in the Advanced Workshop may move into an Online Level IV class with the permission of the online teacher.

I wanted to thank you for one of the most constructive, kind, encouraging, and supportive classes I have yet to experience in my writing world. I learned so much from the critiques, not only of my own work but also from reading everyone’s pieces and listening to you explore with each of us how we might move forward and make breakthroughs, however small, in our writing. I’m just so excited I’m here! NAN PHILIPP, Fiction and Creative-nonfiction writer
