About Writers At Work

Writers At Work was founded in 1997 by author Terry Wolverton. Her vision was to offer ongoing workshops in which writers could
• hone their skills,
• receive constructive and insightful feedback,
• develop longer projects,
• feel comfortable to take creative risks,
• build supportive community for their writing practice and
• develop a readership for their work.
Writers At Work participants have published over 40 books and have appeared in numerous anthologies and literary journals.
WAW writers participate in the literary life of Los Angeles; they have appeared in scores of public readings in venues from Beyond Baroque to the Getty Museum, from the Armory Center for the Arts to Skylight Books, from Art Center College of Design to the Los Angeles LitCrawl.
In addition, Terry has hosted numerous publication projects, including five years of the Poetry Postcard Project; a poetry anthology, Catena; the Poem of the Month Calendar; and the dis•articulations project in 2015 and 2017.
