VIRTUAL: Writers Workshop

Have you ever thought about writing creatively, and would like feedback on your creative project? Do you have a novel, short story, poem, or play inside of you that you've been developing? Come and join our workshop and receive the support and feedback that can help you get to that next level with your creative project!

Then The LOFT Writers Workshop wants you!


Here's how it works:

  • Workshops are held every 3rd Wednesday of each month (There are exceptions) from 7:30-9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.
  • If you are looking to have your work reviewed, you need to submit your work by no later than the 2nd Wednesday and participate in the critique process.
  • Submitting on the 2nd Wednesday of the month gives everyone a week to read all the submissions and produce critiques for everyone's work.  Once you submit your work you too will receive access to the submissions where you will also need to write a brief critique on every piece of work submitted. (You'll also receive a guide for writing critiques--it's really easy and a quick read).
  • That 3rd Wednesday we will all meet and collectively review everyone's submission, writer by writer. Everyone will have a chance to weigh in and offer their assessment in a friendly and constructive atmosphere.  All writers who submitted are required to also attend, participate and produce critiques in order to receive their critiques and feedback.

The LOFT Writers Workshop meets on the third Wednesday of every month from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. 

Please note the submission length will vary from month to month.  To join a workshop, learn about the submission length and other details, or if you have questions please contact [email protected]

Due to COVID-19, our groups are taking place virtually using the platform Zoom. There is a Google Form available here that we ask you to fill out to gain access to the link for this group. This is just an extra security measure we have to help keep the meetings a safe space.
