Writing Workshops

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.

How It Works

Educators interested in our Writing Workshops can request the dates and times that work best for their classrooms. Our sessions are open to students in grades 3-12. All Writing Workshops are offered at no cost to Title I schools.

Become a Writing Workshops Fellow

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 are now seeking candidates to be our inaugural Lisa Page Writing Workshop Fellow. Applications close on June 30, 2021.

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.
