Join us for virtual workshops!The park hosts a series of virtual writing workshops each month. Poetry, prose, non-fiction and other genres are offered. Join us for a workshop or help lead one!
Check the Calendar page for the current schedule, or follow us on Facebook for event announcements.
Writers interested in leading a virtual workshop should contact the Education Coordinator by email. Please submit a resume and program outline. A $250 stipend is offered for these 2-hour monthly programs.
The Carl Sandburg Writer-in-Residence Program ran from 2010 to 2020. Below you can find links to the writers and more information about the program. The program was suspended in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and then transitioned to monthly virtual writing workshops. The monthly workshops have reached international audiences and allows the park an opportunity to work with more writers and reach more people each year than the residence program.
