In 2011, Free Minds began offering eight-week long Writing Workshops as a way to expand our reach and offer additional educational opportunities for adults.

Writing Workshop Goals

  1. Help workshop participants improve their skill and comfort with writing
  2. Create a supportive community environment which fosters development in critical thinking and communication
  3. Introduce workshop participants to foundational humanities texts and higher education opportunities

Beginning and experienced writers are welcome!

Over the course of this 8-week workshop, participants will have the opportunity to build their comfort and skill as writers and to share their stories in a supportive group setting. Vivé Griffith, director of Free Minds and graduate of the Michener Center for Writers at UT Austin, will facilitate the workshop, leading writing exercises to help participants tap into their creativity.

The workshop is free to participate, but space is limited. Those who register should be prepared to attend a majority of workshop sessions.
