Honing the Craft of Writing
Our Writing Workshops are designed to support students with writing skill development. Workshops are led by trained writers who come to classrooms as Teaching Artists to guide students through hands-on writing exercises that help them learn about and practice the craft of writing.
If you’re a DC educator interested in our Writing Workshops or have questions about our programming, please contact us at [email protected]. You can also view our menu of virtual Writing Workshops below.

PEN/Faulkner hires published professional writers to teach curriculum-aligned writing to DC public and charter school students in grades 3-12. This is a seasonal contractor position, and workshops take place during the school day. We provide an orientation prior to placement, mentorship and coaching, and discounts on our Literary Conversations.
“We wrote poems in the style of a handful of his poems and students loved writing their own poetry as well. More than a handful of students really stepped up and began to own their own voice. It was great to see.“
