Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen Writers’ Workshop

General Information


The Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen Writers’ Workshop was created in 1995 by award-winning author Ian Frazier out of the recognition that people eating at the Soup Kitchen have needs and aspirations beyond a meal. The workshop has been a driving motivation for many of our guests who face hunger, homelessness and isolation every day. Taught by professional writers, the workshop is open to soup kitchen guests, volunteers and anyone in the community who wants to write in a productive and creative environment. Much of the poetry and prose created is published in the yearly anthology and blog by the same name, Food for the Soul, and participants are welcome to read their works at the workshop’s annual reading, held at the landmark Holy Apostles Church.
