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.

TWC's 2014-15 Speaker Series
This Sunday - March 8:
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!
