Youth Writing Workshops

Badgerdog Creative Writing Summer Camps

Each summer, Badgerdog hosts three-week writing workshops for rising 3rd- through 12th-graders. These intensive writing workshops allow students to work closely with a professional writer as they explore the arts of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and playwriting. By the end of the summer, all students experience the joy of performing and publishing their original work.

The Foundation sponsors youth writing workshops throughout the year. In addition to the New Fiction Confab Youth Writing Workshops, the Foundation also sponsored two Comic Book Writing Workshops given by Jason Neulander, author of The Intergalactic Nemesis.

Adult Writing 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. Workshops typically meet weekly for 90-minutes over a period of eight weeks. Participants’ work is published at the end of each session in a chapbook, and each workshop concludes with an on-site reading open to family and friends.
