Writing Programs

Writing in Mark Twain's Library

Not a writing class, not a writing workshop, just three hours of uninterrupted writing time in Mark Twain’s own library. Join a select handful of fellow scribblers to write, reflect, and plot whatever piece of literature you’re working on. The space is quiet, except for the burbling fountain in the nearby conservatory, and infused with Mark Twain’s spirit. Don’t miss this once-in-a-life opportunity. Laptops are welcome, but there is NO WI-FI; make sure you charge up before you come, as we have no power outlets to offer. Pencils only, please; no pens permitted!

Admission is $50. 

Each session is limited to 14 participants and runs from 6 pm to 9 pm. Register here!

  • "Anybody can have ideas – the difficulty is to express them without squandering a quire of paper on an idea that ought to be reduced to one glittering paragraph."
