Adult 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.

This year's Mayor's Book Club selection is The Library Book by Susan Orlean, a beautifully written testament to the importance of libraries as spaces of learning, access, resources, and inspiration. In keeping with this theme, we're inviting all of Austin to share their Library Love Stories with us! Selected stories will be featured in future Mayor's Book Club programs, or may air on KUT 90.5 later this fall.

We're looking for stories about how the library changed you in some way — big or small.
Did the library set you on a new path? Help find an important opportunity?
Discover something new about yourself? 

Regardless of age or writing skill, all are invited to submit a story. We're also offering free Badgerdog Writing Workshops to help you get started, shape your story, or polish it up before you send it in. Reserve your spot in one of the workshops below or submit your story now!
