The Off Campus Writers' Workshop (OCWW) was established in 1946 and is the oldest continuously running writing workshop in the country. Each Thursday morning between September and May, their speakers address writers of all genres on topics ranging from craft to publishing options to the business of writing. Many of the speakers offer professional manuscript critiques for a nominal fee. Achieve your individual writing goals while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow writers. You do not need to be a Member of OCWW to attend these programs.
