Word As Bond Has Programs for Writers of All Ages!

Youth Writers’ Workshops

Throughout the school year, Word As Bond (WORD) conducts a series of free creative writing workshops for Indianapolis area teens. In the workshops, writers are given a topic to write about for a short interval, and when that time is up they share their writing among the group. The workshops also include discussion of upcoming events in which writers can participate. Workshops are held two Saturdays each month at different locations in Indianapolis from 11A.M-1P.M. To participate in these workshops teens (13-17 years old) simply need to obtain parental permission and submit an application. Teens 18 years and above need only submit the application. We're looking for as many excited minds as possible to join us in our learning and growing experience. Interested in YWW? Click here to apply.

School and Community Writers’ Workshops
Currently, WORD conducts creative writing workshops at Good Samaritan Missionary Baptist Church and The Hub at George Washington Community School. These weekly after school workshops provide students with the opportunity to explore various forms of literature and use creative writing as a vehicle for healthy self-expression.

The Lab Writers’ Collective
The Lab is a writers’ collective and a peer-led workshop group of Indianapolis area writers and wordsmiths of all genres (poetry, spoken word, fiction, songwriting, screenwriting, multimedia artists) interested in growing as artists and professionals. Members of The Lab are committed to exploring voices that have been historically excluded in representations of Hoosier identity. Committed to the professionalization and proliferation of diverse Hoosier voices, The Lab offers a supportive environment where writers can share their works and receive constructive feedback.
