A private writing school for the brave, enthusiastic, and talented.

Writing Workshops Los Angeles offers courses and one-on-one instruction to those interested in honing their fiction, nonfiction, and poetry writing skills. Workshops are held in the home of the course instructor or, occasionally, in the home of one of the students. The classes are small, intimate, and always fun. At Writing Workshops Los Angeles, we value aesthetic daring, and we strive to read student manuscripts with both the highest standards and an open mind. Students share their work in a respectful environment that prioritizes community, craft, and commitment to the practice of being a writer.

Francesca Lia Block's latest book, The Thorn Necklace: Healing Through Writing and the Creative Process, will be released May 1 and Aja Gabel's debut novel The Ensemble comes out May 15.
