The Indiana Authors Awards Writing Workshop Program brings talented writers and experienced teachers to Indiana communities for writings workshops across the state.

Writing Workshop Program

Looking to develop your own literary skills? We have curated a list of writing workshops, all given by Hoosier authors. These engaging workshops are intended for a variety of audiences and cover several genres. Nonprofits interested in bringing an Indiana writer to their community to provide a one-time writing workshop for a public audience can apply for funds to cover the writer’s fee as part of the new Writing Workshop Program. 

Libraries, schools, museums/historical societies, community centers, art groups, prisons and other nonprofits are eligible to take part. If you’re interested, apply online using the link to the right. Applications must be submitted by November 1, 2019.

If we select you to take part, Indiana Humanities will assign you a workshop (you can list preferences on your application; participating authors are listed below), and we’ll pay the workshop leader’s fee. You’ll be responsible for contacting and scheduling the assigned speaker, paying any travel expenses (including mileage and hotel if needed), providing the venue and handling local publicity.

We’ll notify recipients in late November, and all author visits must be completed by December 31, 2020.

About the Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards

The Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards honor the best books written by Indiana authors. Awarded every two years, they celebrate Indiana writers, shine a light on the Hoosier state’s literary community and deepen connections between Indiana writers and readers. They were established in 2009 as a vision of Eugene and Marilyn Glick and are a new component of Indiana Humanities’ rich and diverse literary programming.


If chosen to participate in the 2019-2020 Writing Workshop Program, we will provide the following tools designed to help you develop and implement a successful program:

  • A toolkit complete with communication tips, event checklists and more
  • A press-release template to help you publicize your event
  • Social media graphics/logos 

We’re eager to support you in your efforts!
