TWC's weekly workshops
inspire, support and encourage writers
at every stage and age.

for children & teens
our innovative approach uses movement, music, role-playing, tactile observation and group dynamics to actively engage students
in the creative experience of writing.

for adults
morning and evening classes, mixed genre
and specialized workshops. Ongoing critique, community and inspiration move each writer toward their own best work.

TWC's instructors
are all professionals who know
their way around words.

Week-long Creative Writing Intensives

for Teens




The Writers Circle's Summer Creative Writing Intensives have outgrown our Summit home and are moving to Drew University for 2015. We're already busy planning three fantastic weeks with lots of great instructors, special guests and much more.


TWC's 2014-15 Speaker Series
Coming in March...
Publishing Matchmakers:

an open discussion with Literary Agents
Liza Dawson, Tamar Rydzinski & Marietta B. Zacker



The right agent can make the difference between publication and languishing in obscurity. Through their carefully honed relationships, these publishing professionals can open doors and help you create a writing career. But first you have to find the perfect match for your work - someone who will "fall in love" with your writing. Learn what attracts agents, what turns them off, and how to better your matchmaking chances in this panel discussion that you've all been clamoring for!


March 8, 2015
2:00-4:00 PM
at MONDO, 426 Springfield Ave.

TWCs Open in April!


Free Sample Workshops

in Ridgewood

March 1, 2:00-4:00 PM


For years now, we’ve fielded requests for workshops like ours in other places. But the most frequent requests have come from Bergen County. We’re happy to announce that The Writers Circle will offer classes in lovely Ridgewood, NJ beginning April 6.



We’ve brought together some fantastic local authors who are offering seven workshops for both children and adults.


At the same time, we’re offering a handful of workshops in Montclair including Memoir, an Adult Writers Circle and a much needed new Teen Writers Circle.


We're holding free sample workshops at our new Ridgewood location - The Unitarian Society of Ridgewood, 113 Cottage Place - on Sunday, March 1 from 2:00-4:00 PM.


Advance registration is suggested!
