The Chicago Writers Studio offers a wide-range of writing classes and workshops for adults, at half the price of writing workshops downtown or on the north side. Classes are taught by experienced Teaching Artists who all have published widely in their fields. Lavalais believes words matter and each story matters. "Whether your story manifests itself through biography, fiction, poetry or  screenwriting, Chicago Writers Studio will help you discover it. Our workshops are small and our instructors are passionate about writing and teaching writing. Whether you want to try your hand at poetry for the first time, or you're in the midst of editing your second novel, Chicago Writers Studio has a place for you."
