Workshops at the Porch are rigorous yet welcoming, encouraging creative expression while sharpening knowledge of craft. Led by experienced teachers, our classes allow participants to learn from one another in a supportive atmosphere. 

In our intermediate to advanced workshops and one-day seminars we aim for thorough discussion, feedback, and pedagogy on par with courses offered through degree-earning programs. These workshops are a great choice if you're thinking about applying for an MFA or looking to keep up your writing practice and skills after college or graduate school. But if you're new to writing or just looking for some inspiring practice and play with words on the page, we've got the perfect workshop for you, too.

We're also dedicated to bringing notable writers and poets to Nashville to teach and give readings. Jericho Brown, Rebecca Gayle Howell, Maggie Smith, Megan Stielstra, Hanif Abdurraqib, Sherrie Flick, Keith Leonard, Jamie Quatro, and Beth Ann Fennelly have been our guests in our first five years of programming. 

Want to apply for a scholarship? We're now accepting applications for our Fall 2019 class season. Fall classes will be announced in late July.

We also offer editing & critique services and one-on-one consulting to help you reach your writing goals. Please fill out this brief questionnaire to help us connect you with an editor or consultant.
