Writers - BARN


The Writers’ Studio offers classes, inspiration, and community for writers of all skill levels. Whether you are beginning a writing journey, mastering the craft of writing, or learning the business in order to become a published author, the Writers’ Studio is here for you.



Celebrate National Poetry Month by joining us at BARN for the annual Ars Poetica display. You’ll see dozens of works from multiple studios such as Glass Arts, Woodworking, Fiber Arts, and more – all inspired by poems contributed from the Writers’ Studio!  Drop by anytime to view our display located downstairs in the Commons area.



As a BARN member, you can schedule an orientation to have access to the Writers Studio. Send an email to set up a time for the orientation. Completing the orientation will allow you to use the room for your own writing whenever a class, event, or meeting is not scheduled.


Spring Sampler — Sunday, May 1

Drop by the Writers’ Studio during our Spring Sampler event and see the space, meet members of our Writers’ Studio steering committee, and play with some words! We’ll let you know what’s coming up in the next few weeks as we move back into more in-person workshops.
