About Our Online Creative Writing Workshops

The Eckleburg Workshops offer online fiction, poetry, nonfiction, novel, screenwriting and other workshops. Additionally, we are a diverse community and give priority to individual voices in innovative, traditional and mixed aesthetics. Most noteworthy, we offer an augmentation to MA, MFA and PhD programs. Subsequently, our students compose both MFA graduates and self-taught writers. Our diverse writers inform each other, bringing global awareness and a depth of aesthetic breadth.

 

Our Diverse Creative Writing Population

We value dedication to bettering craft with a focus on storytelling at whatever point the writer is, formerly trained or not. We quickly identify areas of strengths and needs and help writers value and grow their own crafts. We do have many returning students. Most of all, we want to support our writers in the way they want to be supported, not giving them a sales pitch. Some of our writers find that one or two courses gives them the jolt they need, while others return month after month for the community and continual craft support.

 

The Eckleburg Scholarship

The Eckleburg Scholarship began in 2015. This award is open to outstanding student scholars currently enrolled within a university graduate writing program and are in pursuit of artistic aesthetic innovation in both the U.S. and international communities.

Whatever your writing focuses and needs, we are here to work with you. We promise to help you find and value your authentic voice. If you have questions, please contact us. We look forward to working with you.

To many of these organizations, I’ve already made purchases and to some I’ve invested a great deal of money and time, and so donations seem redundant, especially when there are organizations such as: ASPCA Heartly House Wounded Warrior Project Narwhal […]
