We're a writers' studio and literary advocacy organization, with ongoing workshops, craft classes, and manuscript services for writers of all levels.




Fiction Writers' Workshop

Our spring workshop is an 6-week deep read of your fiction manuscript. We'll work within an engaged small-group workshop format, with each story getting a supportive, constructive and detailed critique of plot, structure, dialogue, setting, scene and character. 

For beginning and intermediate fiction writers.

Our Story

The Wonderland Writers' Studio took its name from the former Wonderland amusement park that called Shorewood (then East Milwaukee) home in the early 20th century.

We believe that we all have stories to tell. As Muriel Rukeyser reminds us the universe is made of stories and therefore so are we.

We offer classes for writers of all levels—whether you're putting your first words to paper or refining your work for publication. We will continue to offer a range of workshops, classes and intensives with the grand hope of helping as many people as possible engage telling stories.
