Thank you for your interest in teaching for the Writers’ Workshoppe & Imprint Books. We are always excited to bring a new writing facilitator on board. In the past, we've been thrilled to host instructors such as Dorothy Allison, Melissa Febos, Lidia Yuknavitch, Pam Houston, Gary Copeland Lilley, Spencer Reece, Claudia Castro Luna, Priscilla Long, Kim Stafford, and many others.
Process of applying to teach
In one email, please send us a workshop proposal that includes:
your teaching resume
cost of your proposed workshop
how many participants you’d like (one room holds 12, the other holds 6)
We’ll read it, and if all is well, we’ll send back possible dates and times.
We work on a revenue share basis with 60% for the instructor and 40% for the Writers' Workshoppe & Imprint Books.
For that, we:
provide a strong marketing presence; website, social media, newsletter emailed to more than 4,000 folks every other week, print brochures, and a flier on our front window.
handle all the registration details and any interfacing with participants.
provide a cozy, scent-free space stocked with coffee, tea, and water.
Once your workshop proposal is approved, and the dates and times are all set, send the following components in one email:
We will then put it up on the website and begin marketing it!
How do I determine my cost of workshop?
Anywhere between $10 - $20 per person per hour of the workshop. For example, if you hold a one-day intensive for $100 per person with 12 people, you’d make $720.
Do we offer scholarships and/or payment plans?
Yes! It’s our mission to not let money get in the way of writing. Though, we do limit our scholarships per workshop to ensure that both the instructor and organizer are paid.
Is travel or lodging provided?
The short answer is no. We suggest factoring that into the price of your proposed workshop.
Are there copying services provided at your location?
Sorry but no. You’ll need to prepare all your copied work prior to the workshop.
Is there a lunch hour?
Lunchtime is decided by you. Most folks opt to send everyone off on their own for an hour. Others ask participants to bring their own lunches. Option one is most favorable. We’re lucky to be situated in the middle of Water Street and are sandwiched between a number of tasty cafes and lunch spots.
What are the typical hours of workshop?
That depends on whether you’d like to do a one-day, two-day, or weekly workshop. Most of our one-day workshops are from 10:00 - 4:00, with an hour off for lunch.
Open Everyday 10:00am - 5:30pm
