Dzanc National Workshop Day

Dzanc's new effort to expand our mission and bring the creative world to a national audience, DZANC DAY takes its cue from the popularity of our Dzanc Creative Writing Sessions. On March 20, 2010, Dzanc will run over 30 creative writing workshops in 25 cities across the country. These workshops will be held in cities from Portland, OR to Orlando, FL, from New Haven, CT to Los Angeles, CA and points between.

All monies raised from DZANC DAY will go toward supporting Dzanc's charitable programs which, in part, bring creative writing programs to students who could not otherwise afford the opportunity. Fantastic authors from across the country have volunteered their time, experience, and expertise to run these individual workshops. Each workshop will allow students to work face-to-face with the instructor in specific venues with each location focusing on a specific aspect of the writing world.

If you are an author who is interested in setting up an additional workshop in a city not currently represented, please email Dzanc Books at:

Specific details for each workshop, as well as the link to sign up via Paypal, are below. Most of the workshops will run for 4 or 5 hours and will cost $50, while another runs for 8 hours and will cost $100, rates far lower than any comparable program. Those wishing to sign up but not pay via Paypal can send an email stating such to:
info (at) dzancbooks.org (Replace (at) with @) and send a check for the cost to:

Dzanc Books
1334 Woodbourne Street
Westland, MI 48186

The DZANC DAY workshops serve not only to expand Dzanc's effort to bring inexpensive, face-to-face workshops to a wider audience, but, as noted, also to help us generate income that will allow Dzanc to continue that effort in our other charitable arenas - awarding the annual Dzanc Prize, running Dzanc Writer in Residence Programs in schools across the country, and more.
