The Haven’s mission is to provide all-inclusive workshops to help people of all ages, experience levels, and interests to develop their writing talents. For those who don’t have time for a year-round workshop, we’re excited to announce the Haven’s first short-term workshop is starting in August 2016.


Short Story Workshop (5 weeks)
Dates: Wednesday nights from 8/10/16 to 9/7/16
Time: 7-9pm
Place: East End Book Exchange
Cost: $20

The goal of this workshop is for every participant to write an original short story from start to finish over the course of the 5 weeks, which will be performed at a public reading at the end. We’ll do writing prompts to get the creative juices flowing, read other short stories for inspiration, and talk about what works in short stories (and what doesn’t).

We’re setting a maximum class size of 8 on this first workshop. If you’re interested in a spot or have any questions about the workshop, e-mail Jess Simms (
