What is Off Campus Writers’ Workshop?
Ever since 1946, OCWW has encouraged and inspired Chicago-area writers in developing their writing avocations. OCWW meets every Thursday morning from September to May. A variety of speakers will elevate your writing technique with a diversity of topics, amongst which can be genre fiction, nonfiction, children’s lit, contemporary simmerings of romance fiction, poetry, publishing and the implication of ebooks. Here, you will achieve your individual writing goals while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow writers. You can also submit your manuscript for a professional critiqueing by our speakers. When you are published, we will announce your achievement at the workshops and in our Bulletin. So, invest an effort into perfecting your writing and join OCWW...it’s where writers and workshops collide.
