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.


Context magazine

If you are a BARN member, our online journal Context is now accepting submissions for the summer edition. It’s a wonderful opportunity to showcase your work–whether it is your writing or sharing the story behind your art work. There are several other categories from which to choose. Among them are creative prompts. You can find the submission form here.

Our first annual Ars Poetica at BARN show was a colorful collaboration with the Fiber Arts Studio.  Poems for our second Ars Poetica are due by September 30, 2021.  Send up to three poems to [email protected]. You can also see a digital copy of the poems and art work from 2020 at this link: Ars Poetica Exhibit 2020

We’re excited to bring back Word Sprint (a timed writing session) that takes place online from 9:30 to 11:30 on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. You need to register to receive the zoom link.

When BARN reopens, members can schedule an orientation to have access to the Writers Studio. You can 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.

We welcome your participation and value your ideas and suggestions!
