Most Maryland schools are already in session, but for those who want to become students of the arts, there are still several workshops open for enrollment.
The Writer’s Center
For the past 40 years, The Writer’s Center has been a valuable resource for writers in the area, offering a variety of courses each season. Choose from a selection of courses from short story workshops, poetry, genre fiction, and more. Members of The Writer’s Center receive a discount on courses. A full list of courses can be found in the fall catalogue.
The Maryland Writer’s Association
If you are interested in finding a community while getting feedback on your work, The Maryland Writer’s Association has a listing of critique groups (both online and in person) throughout Maryland. The groups vary by genre and level of experience, so you will most likely be able to find a group that matches your interests. For a complete listing by county, look here.
The Columbia Association
