A creative community.
An inspiring environment.
In 1994 the Grotto pioneered a unique concept: a workspace for creative, self-employed people who by definition don’t need to punch a clock. Since then we’ve been a place where practitioners of the narrative arts–writers, filmmakers, radio producers, new media creators and others–enjoy the support of a community of peers. We also connect with the greater San Francisco Bay community through classes and special events.

The Grotto offers classes in a variety of genres and disciplines, all taught by professional writers with extensive publications in their subjects. To guarantee personal attention we strictly limit class sizes; early registration is recommended as classes frequently sell out.
