At Paperback Shack, we believe readers and writers need a gathering place. For the last four years we have provided space for both. And, though our beliefs have not changed, our circumstances have (before the rumors start -Lisa has accepted a Writing Instructor position within the community which is limiting her time at the store). We will still offer classes, just not as many. Also, you may have noticed our Writer’s Group page has disappeared from the menu, it saddens us, but we will no longer be hosting a writer’s group at the store.


2019 Class List

Our classes fill up fast. Seats are first come, first serve. Please contact us to reserve your seat as soon as you know you want to attend.

The registration deadlines are final.

All classes are taught by Lisa, who earned her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at Chatham University in Pittsburgh.

Complete Fall Class List Coming Soon…

If you have class requests, please stop by the store before September 1st to discuss them. 

Private Group Classes or Tutoring

Would you like to take one of our classes but the dates or times don’t work for you? If you have a group of FOUR or MORE people – you could have a class just for your group. If you have less than four people, Lisa also offers tutoring. To find out more, stop by the store and speak with Lisa.
