Westport Writers' Workshop
Arts; Events, Education & Galleries
Westport Writers’ Workshop, located in Westport, CT is nestled along the Saugatuck River, and has been a creative enclave for the last 125 years, beginning in 1910 when F. Scott Fitzgerald discovered our shores and was inspired to write The Great Gatsby. The artist population of Westport exploded through the 1950s through to 1970s. Today Westport is populated with communities of artists, musicians and writers who continue to relocate here from New York. For the past 20 years, Westport Writers’ Workshop has been a beacon of the literary arts community - our mission is to enrich, support, educate and connect local and nationwide writers. We are the place where writers go for every stage of the creative development in a supportive environment to learn, revise, edit and publish. Our non profit outreach program provides instructors to underserved communities because we believe everyone can benefit from the healing power of writing and storytelling.
