Writing Courses and Workshops in the GTA


In 2008, we first posted this ever-growing list of writing courses and workshops, and it has consistently been one of the most popular posts on Open Book, which suggests that many Torontonians are searching for writing groups, workshops and courses to help them hone their writing skills and meet fellow writers.

We've updated and republished the list, adding links to even more workshops and courses in the GTA. If you run or know of a writing group or workshop that's not on the list, please sign in and post a note below or send an email to with the details.

Attention writers: The Organization of Book Publishers of Ontario (OBPO) has a page on their website that offers helpful tips on how to get published.
