Classes at the Grotto
Our workshops, seminars and other classes are taught only by published authors in each specific genre. Only published novelists teach our novel-writing classes, only published memoirists teach our memoir classes, and only working journalists and historians teach our nonfiction classes. It’s a distinct approach–and perhaps why we’ve been voted Best of the Bay Area by San Francisco Magazine, and why our students consistently register their satisfaction on Yelp. Grotto classes also offer an exclusive additional experience: in our Three-Minute Reading Series, held quarterly at Book Passage in the Ferry Building, students have the opportunity to read their work in public.
Our Fall Session is now open, with session dates from September 14 through November 21. Click on upcoming classes to see what we’ve got in store for you.
