ABOUT US

 

The Quill & Pint's writing syllabus is packed with 100% of your monthly allowance of literary nutrition. It will fortify you with new ways of thinking about writing, fill you up with creativity and send you back to your project with your thirst for wordplay quenched.

 

The Quill & Pint workshops encourage writers of all experience levels and genres to push themselves beyond what they think they can be as creatives. We focus on writing fundamentals - we're not a critique group. You'll write a new piece live, in-person, and join the rhythm of a writing circle seething with new ideas.

Grab a pint of your favorite (beverage, ice cream, sour cream, whatever) and join us for some good ol' creative writing fun. And expect puns. Bad puns. Lots of them.
