Established in 1937, the Minneapolis Writers Workshop is an eclectic mix of writers, ranging from beginners to long time professionals, and reflect all ages, genders and backgrounds. We have members who publish literary fiction, creative non-fiction, children’s literature, romance, hard-boiled crime, memoir, travel, poetry, humor and assorted forms of the unclassifiable.
The first Wednesday of every month is Open Read: Non-members are welcome to bring a piece of their writing for the workshop to critique (10-minute limit). Next Open Read is Wednesday, September 7. But remember: Visitors are welcome to attend (though not read or critique) any Wednesday.
The depression-era gangster novel, He’s Either Dead or in St. Paul by Workshop member D. B. MOON (DAN BUDKE) is shortlisted in the genre division of the Minnesota Book Awards. MOON is represented by CHRISTY PERRY’S Three Waters Press. Finalists will be announced on April 16, 2016.
