Our series of free, public workshops is designed to open new vistas of creative exploration for writers of high-school age and older and to provide a fun and supportive environment for the development of their craft. Workshops are held the second Thursday of each month at the Ralph Ellison Library from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Each workshop will be conducted by a special guest writer and include writing exercises as well as the opportunity to share work. In presenting this workshop series, we're very proud to partner with the Red Earth MFA Program at Oklahoma City UniversityShort Order Poems, and the Metropolitan Library System. We hope you’ll join us as we learn together and strive to enhance Oklahoma City’s multicultural literary landscape in the name of our state’s most significant literary pioneer.
