The Inlandia Institute offers creative writing workshops for children, teens and adults in various locations throughout the Inland Empire. With the exception of Boot Camp workshops, these workshops are free, though a suggested donation of $25 per session is appreciated in order to support the workshops program. Registration is required. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
We have held workshops in locations serving most of the Inland Empire: San Bernardino, Corona, Idyllwild, Ontario, Palm Springs, & Riverside. For current dates, times, and locations, please email Inlandia@InlandiaInstitute.org or go back to the front page and view the events calendar. Select the “Creative Writing Workshops” category for dates, times, and locations.
About Inlandia’s Creative Writing Workshops Program
The goal of Inlandia’s Creative Writing Workshops Program is to support creative expression and encourage emerging writers who live, work or write about the region.
How a Writing Workshop Works
Writers participate in workshops for a number of reasons, some practical and some esoteric. We want honest but constructive criticism of our work by intelligent readers and listeners, we crave the fellowship of like-minded artists, we need an occasional push toward completing a piece of writing, we seek stimulus to stir our imaginations and we require reassurance that our hard work is not in vain. We also hope that the workshop leader will lead us to appropriate markets for our work. Inlandia workshops provide some or all of the above to their various participants.
Writing from Inlandia: Celebrating the Work of Workshop Participants
The Inlandia Institute annually produces a Creative Writing Showcase of the creative work generated out the workshops and publishes the works of the participants in an anthology. Participation in either or both is optional. We hope you will want to take advantages of these opportunities to promote and celebrate your work.
