Read Like a Writer, Write Like a Writer: Prose Workshop w Paige Thomas | Apr 30 - May 28 | In-person

Being a writer means being a reader. The best way to become a better writer? Become a better reader. Books are a writer's most invaluable collaborator. To read like a writer is to explore why and how a narrative works—and then mirroring it. We'll do just that through a close study of craft and grow from there. In "Read Like a Writer, Write Like a Writer," we’ll read together one essay and one short-story for our models and then, through guided discussion that culminates in a creative writing prompt, we'll share what we were inspired to write. You’ll not only come away from the workshop with new writing, but with new habits for whatever you write (and read!) next.

A Statement of Our Values

The Attic Institute of Arts and Letters opposes the legitimation of bigotry, hate, and misinformation. As a studio for writers, we do not tolerate harassment or discrimination of any kind. We embrace and celebrate our shared pursuit of literature and languages as essential to crossing the boundaries of difference. To that end, we seek to maintain a creative environment in which every employee, faculty member, and student feels safe, respected, and comfortable — even while acknowledging that poems, stories, and essays delve into uncomfortable subjects. We accept the workshop as a place to question ourselves and to empathize with complex identities. We understand that to know the world is to write the world. Therefore, we reaffirm our commitment to literary pursuits and shared understanding by affirming diversity and open inquiry.
