South Chatham Writers' Workshop

Spread your literary wings

Founded in 2013, the South Chatham Writers' Workshop is a custom-tailored program for aspiring writers and writers who seek further training. We offer mentorship in writing and guidance in publishing. We have a special interest in narrative medicine. The workshop is directed by the award-winning writer and Boston College professor Maxim D. Shrayer.

Over the years, we've met many working professionals who have important ideas for shorter works or books, but don't know how to begin or how to continue. We aim to help writers find focus and develop their own literary voice. We offer a remarkably small student-teacher ratio, ensuring personal learning and feedback. Be inspired by diverse and stimulating colleagues from all walks of life. Recharge your creative energies in the historic Cape Cod village of South Chatham, an idyllic setting away from the hustle and bustle of daily professional life. Visits from award-winning writers enliven our discussions, as do the finest pastries we can find.
