Hone your craft. Tell your story.
The Writer’s Studio at the University of Chicago is home to a community of writers and instructors passionate about the written word. Through classes, events, and workshops, the Studio connects writers of all genres and ability levels in creative writing.
- Creative writing courses include fiction, memoir, playwriting, poetry, short story, prose, novel-writing, and more. Introductory courses and advanced courses are labeled so that students can select the courses that are right for them and their writing goals.
Classes are designed to support, inspire, and challenge writers across experience levels. Whether you are a new or veteran writer, the Writer's Studio will help you take your craft to the next level.
Courses in the Writer’s Studio are offered in a mix of online and in-person formats. All courses are capped at 14 students to promote deeper conversation and provide ample time for review of written work.
Our methodology is inspired by more than 130 years of leadership at the University of Chicago in the craft of writing.
The Writer’s Studio community is comprised of students, alumni, distinguished authors, and eminent instructors. In addition to our courses, we also offer ongoing events to encourage new relationships and sustained learning. Students and alumni of the Writer’s Studio are also warmly welcomed into larger Graham School community events and opportunities.
