Delaware Writers Studio is designed to help working writers improve their craft, as well as to provide encouragement and inspiration. We offer workshops from 1:30-3:30 on the 3rd Sunday of every month (with a few exceptions, noted in the calendar) at Kirkwood Library, 6000 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington. Delaware Writers Studio Workshops currently consist of presentations and/or workshops offered by writers for writers. The main focus is craft, but there are also events related to the “business” side of writing: submitting poems and stories, submitting to writing contests, publishing and self-publishing, and more. There might be occasions where we have a free write or a free write with prompts. 

Due to library restrictions, attendees must be at least 18 years old, or accompanied by an adult.

Comments from Attendees

The presentation was well organized and provided specific information for all of us. The information was exactly what I wished to hear. Thanks so much!

So much practical and useful info! Good exercises. And fun, too! And cookies!!

Excellent presentation. Loved the prompts. Trying something new. Loved it!

Found this very informative and thought provoking.

The breakdowns and outlines specific to genre were very interesting. Hard copy Powerpoint is a plus.

Great source of information. Very well organized and presented clearly with good examples. Hand-out with full Powerpoint screens along with space for notetaking is great and I will refer back to it in the future.

Loved the honest and practical discussion and useful advice.

Fantastic speaker. I enjoyed hearing her perspective on writing memoir. The writing exercise was good.

This series is great! What a lineup of terrific presenters!

My first workshop with the Delaware Writers Studio and I am highly impressed. Thank you!!!
