Seattle Writes

Seattle Writes - Programs and resources to support Seattle writers.

Seattle Writes supports local writers through programs, workshops, write-ins, and by providing spaces to work throughout the city.


Writing programs and resources at The Seattle Public Library


Refine your writing, experiment with a new form, and polish your manuscript with the help of our Seattle Writes classes, podcasts, and resources. Beginning February 12, 2017, we'll have a monthly two-hour class focused on the craft of writing; this Second Sunday Series will be held at the Central Library downtown. Fall 2017 brings dozens of free writing and publishing classes throughout the city. And in between? Check out our Seattle Writes podcasts (coming soon!).

All Seattle Writes programs are free and no registration is required. We suggest arriving 30 minutes prior to class start time; first come, first seated. We'll accommodate as many students as we can, while staying within our room capacity guidelines. Look under "Workshops" for information on classes in English (Seattle Writes) and Spanish (Seattle Escribe).
