Coffee & Craft 2023

TWFest launches FREE monthly writing workshop series!

TWFest is kicking off a free monthly writing workshop series as part of a partnership with Baldwin & Co. Coffee and Bookstore. New Orleans author Alex Jennings will lead the first workshop on Saturday, February 4 from 10 am until 12 noon. The workshops will be generative and interactive, so attendees are encouraged to bring their notebooks. Writers of any experience level are welcome, and the series will feature mostly New Orleans writers.  Come a bit early, buy a cup of coffee from Baldwin, and you can purchase a copy of Alex's book before the session.

The series will continue one Saturday per month now through December. It's free, but please register at the link below.
