Red Oak Writing offers programming for writers of all levels of ability and experience.
We recognize that the definition of writing “success” is different for each writer who comes through our door. From the aspiring novelist who wants to see her name on the cover of a book to the poet who wants to be published in a literary journal to the grandfather who wants to create a memoir for future generations, we take our writers where they are and help give them the tools to make their writing dreams come true.
Through Roundtable critique groups, craft workshops, author readings and Creative Writing Camps for young people, Red Oak creates a supportive community of writers who have the same goal: to improve their writing and help others to do the same.
Red Oak Writing is the offspring of Redbird Studio, which was founded by renowned writer/coach Judy Bridges. For more than twenty years, Redbird Studio has helped thousands of writers find their voice through classes, workshops and roundtables. Judy continues to teach Shut Up & Write! as well as offer writers’ retreats throughout Wisconsin and beyond.
