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.
Sunday, April 30 / 2:00-4:00 PM / Faulk Central Library
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.
Delving into Mysticism: Yeats, Tarot & Poetics
Saturday, May 20 / 10:30 AM-12:30 PM / Terrazas Branch Library
Grab your writing pads and tarot cards (or use ours) and join us for this generative writing workshop led by Micah Ruelle. Poetry and tarot have a long history, and it makes sense that modern poets would continue to draw on the deck's associate nature. Come discover what tarot has to offer your creative process!
