Those four words


How often have you said you’ve “always wanted to write”? What stops you?

Nothing . . . now that you’re here. Take an online workshop or attend an in-person class. Either way, you’re not getting a pre-recorded video but an actual live instructor who’s there to give you expert guidance, answer your questions, and help you become a better writer.

Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve written before but are stuck, get started–or jumpstart your stalled writing practice–with

⇒  small group instruction at beginner or intermediate levels
⇒  private one-on-one coaching
⇒  consultation on work in progress
⇒  editing and/or proofreading work prior to submission/publication.

Writers aren’t born–they’re made. You can write, and AWTW can help with creative non-fiction, memoir, essay, blogging, fiction, short stories, novels, flash fiction, and writing for the online environment. Poetry workshops are offered on an occasional basis by visiting instructors.*

Feel insecure? With classes deliberately designed to be small, you’ll get specific, focused attention in a supportive group, either via easy-to-use videoconferencing (all you do is click a link) or in a face-to-face real-world class.

If you live in the Central New York area, it’s worth a trip to Syracuse to sit and write in this comfortable, serene, and uplifting setting: the Always Wanted To Write Studio on the third floor of the Delavan Center Artists’ Warehouse.


Not enough time to write? How about 60 minutes to 3 hours? Each single-session workshop gives you tools and techniques to launch your writing practice.

Stop wanting. Start doing. Click Classes on the menu bar or Coaching if you prefer private instruction.

* For those interested in poetry who are based in Central New York, the Downtown Writers Center offers poetry classes and a variety of other programs. I highly recommend the DWC; they have exceptional instructors in every area of writing (I know, I teach there), and the longer 8-week class format is designed to grow skills and create community — both essential elements of a writer’s successful practice.
