The Writers' Workshoppe & Imprint Books is both a resource for writers andan eclectic bookstore. We carry over 6,000 titles carefully curated based on our favorite lists, reviewers, and the passions of our community as well as ourselves. If we don't have what you're looking for, simply order it from one of our fabulous booksellers. Special orders ship for free and arrive in as little as one business day.
We also offer writing workshops, weekly and one-day. Our instructors come from all over. We’ve been honored to host writers such as Melissa Febos, Lidia Yuknavitch, Claudia Castro Luna, Dorothy Allison, Pam Houston, Sonya Lea, Natalie Goldberg, Erica Bauermeister, Priscilla Long, Gary Copeland Lilley, Kim Stafford, and many others.
In addition to workshops, we host readings and book signings. You can find out about upcoming events here on our Events page.
To request an event, reading, or for us to carry your book, please visit the Requests page. We review these at the end of every month. However, due to the large number of requests we receive, we cannot respond to everyone.
