Phoenix Center for the Arts has partnered with professional local writers and writing instructors to sponsor creative writing classes that begin in early May at the center.

La Phoenikera Writers’ Guild takes its name from the Spanish nickname for Phoenix, and maintains that encouraging linguistic and cultural diversity is crucial if literary arts are to thrive here in any real sense. Throughout the year, classes in Navajo Literature, Harlem Renaissance Literature, Mark Twain, Spanglish Poetry and other courses will be offered on a rotating basis. Classes will take place at Phoenix Center for the Arts and other downtown partner locations, including Burton Barr Library, Greenhaus, and Phoenix Youth Hostel.

Programming will include an impressive array of writing classes, from creative writing workshops to classes aimed at developing writing and reading skills by reading works from literary greats.

Programs are available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday; prices range from $44 to $202, depending on the class. To see a full schedule of classes and to register, visit, select “Classes,” then “Adult Classes,” and “Creative Writing.” For more information, call 602-254-3100.
