Most of us know Inprint for its reading series, but the nonprofit doesnt just present writers it trains them, too. During the Inprint Summer 2009 Writers Workshops, local writers will spend eight weeks working with some of Houstons most prestigious authors, playwrights and poets to learn how to turn a phrase and set a scene. Mildreds Umbrella Theater Companys resident playwright John Harvey and short story writer Gabriela Maya are among the workshop instructors. Hours and days vary. 1520 West Main. For information, call 713-521-2026 or visit www.inprinthouston.org. $275.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: June 1. Continues through June 27, 2009
