We Are a Fiction Workshop

The Backyard Writers Workshop is among Philadelphia’s longest-running fiction workshops, and probably its favorite. Since its conception in 2011, a number of writers have joined the biweekly workshop for reasons of growth, accountability, and community. Many of these writers are listed above–click on any one to see who they are.

For how the workshop works, take a look at our guidelines.

Sometimes we do readings in backyards.
