We support the Austin Public Library. Learn how you can, too.

Adult Workshops


Badgerdog offers creative writing workshops for adult writers of all age and skill levels in libraries and community centers across Austin. Some classes offer a broad survey of literary genres and written forms, while others focus specifically on fiction, poetry, or nonfiction. This fall, we are offering a blend of free and fee-based classes. The fee-based classes allow us to continue providing free workshops in the libraries. We hope you will consider participating in both, to enjoy the free programming and support our ability to provide half of our programs at no cost.

Write Club

Write Club 2016

Sundays / June 25 & July 30 / 2:00-4:00 PM / Faulk Central Library
All programs in the Austin Public Library are free
No registration required

Badgerdog is the official host of Write Club, an informal, monthly gathering of writers. Each two-hour session is distinct from the rest and will touch on a variety of genres and writing strategies. This is a great way to find new sources of inspiration and meet fellow writers. Teaching Artist Terri Schexnayder will lead these sessions.  


Forgotten Women Writers

Saturday, May 27 / 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM / Yarborough Branch Library

We'll read work by brilliant, under-appreciated female authors and learn from their literary moves. Discover amazing writers neglected by time and "The Establishment" -- and find inspiration to craft your own unique style. This workshop includes energetic writing exercises and will send you home with an exciting reading list to continue the adventure.

**If you've taken this class before, this session features a different set of female writers & will be new to you.**
