The Paris Writers Workshop 2018 (PWW) takes place from Sunday June 24 to Saturday June 30 at Forum 104 in central Paris.
The PWW is hosted by WICE, a non-profit community program founded in 1978 by Anglophones residing in Paris. With the support of WICE, the Paris Writers Workshop has established a strong international reputation for the quality of its instruction, the strength of its faculty, and the success of its summer workshop participants.
“My book of creative nonfiction, Hemingway on a Bike, was published and received excellent reviews and it won the 2015 AML Award. I also recently received word that my third book, Invisible Men will be published by the University of Indiana Press, forthcoming in 2017.”
–Eric Freeze, Author of Hemingway on a Bike, PWW alumnus 2010, PWW faculty 2014
For the past two decades, the workshop has become an integral part of the Paris creative writing scene. Many participants – both teachers and students – return to PWW year after year. The PWW has attracted award-winning faculty, including Marilyn Hacker, Samantha Chang, Ayana Mathis, Alecia McKenzie, Mimi Swartz, Ellen Sussman, and Eric Frieze.
That continuity has not only strengthened the program, but also the English-speaking writing community, which Paris has always welcomed. In turn, the Paris Writers Workshop draws energy from the rich cultural heritage of Paris.
In addition to participants based in Paris, writers join our summer program from all over the globe. PWW alumni attach great importance to the workshop’s high level of instruction and reasonable cost. But what participants value most is the convivial writing community that forms around each workshop.
