Writing Wizards workshops, for students in grades 2 - 8, meet Saturdays in February and March, and are limited to 15 students per workshop.

Watch this space in the fall for registration information!

Tuition is $90 for 2/3 grade classes and $100 for 4/5 and 6/7/8 grade classes.

Scholarships are generously provided in memory of the following Thurber House volunteers: Babette Lazarus Sirak, Norm and Ruth Spain, and Janet Hammock. We have a limited number of scholarships available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please note - Students may receive one scholarship toward one Thurber Writing program in a calendar year. Full scholarships require verification of enrollment in a free school lunch program or a letter from a school official stating financial need and the $8 non-refundable registration fee.  Partial scholarships require verification of enrollment in a reduced school lunch program or a letter from a school official stating the need for partial financial assistance, and payment of half the tuition plus the $8 non-refundable registration fee ($53 for grades 2-3, $58 for grades 4-8).  Applications and fees must be received by Friday, January 6th and scholarship recipients will be notified by Friday, January 13th.

Full tuition, minus the $8 registration fee, will be refunded only if a class is full or if Thurber House cancels a class.  Tuition is 50% refundable for cancellations received by January 27.  After January 27, no refunds will be given.

We encourage the involvement of children with special needs and do our best to ensure that our students with mobility challenges are accommodated.  Please let us know of any special needs when you register so we can prepare prior to the start of the Writing Wizards program.


Thank you to our generous sponsors who make this program possible!
