Write Here Write Now is our community creative writing workshop series. The Pittsburgh Poetry Collective uses the poetic resources available to us via local talent and out-of-town performers to provide a space for community interaction and collaborative art as well as educational development in honor of our commitment to the power of voice. Check our calendar of events (on the bottom of the home page) for workshops that we host free or at low cost, or you can simply contact us if you’re interested in donating your space to our workshop series.
If you’d like us to put you in touch with poets to come to your organization and perform, please look into WordUp, where we connect our community to poets for private workshops and performances.
Workshops vary and can encompass creative writing, spoken word, microphone and performance skills, flash fiction writing, and non-fiction techniques. We’ve done workshops at many places–including the University of Pittsburgh, Fox Chapel High School, Cannon Coffee, etc. If you would like to register for one of our workshops or want more information on upcoming workshops, contact us.
