The Writers’ Bloc

keep calm and write

The Writers’ Bloc is a FREE workshop for writers of all genres, styles, and experience levels.

Whether you’re brand-new to the writing process, polishing a work-in-progress, or just feeling stuck somewhere in the middle, The Writers’ Bloc is here to help. Bring a question, an idea to brainstorm with the group, or an excerpt from  a current project to share and receive feedback.

Meeting the 4th Sunday of each month from 4:00-6:00 pm.

*If you plan on having a scene read aloud, please bring a separate copy for each actor/reader.

Already have a complete script? You can submit it to be considered for a staged reading! Learn more.


“It has been beyond wonderful working with the folks at 5th Wall. I have had the opportunity to participate in both their Rough Draft Readings and Writers Bloc programs, and the experience has been invaluable. They provide an environment that is safe and nurturing for playwrights to hone and expand their craft. It is truly a joy to bring them new material because I know I will get the guidance and inspiration to develop it into a producible piece.”

-Richard Ridley, local playwright and novelist
