Groups + Workshops

The Center offers a wide variety of workshops, one-day bootcamps, and reading groups for both writers and readers interested in joining a community of literature lovers and fiction makers. Every great city needs a great home for readers and writers. The Center would like to be yours.


The Center for Fiction offers high-level literary discussion in an intimate, welcoming setting. Our brand new Brooklyn location is ideal for delving into literature, led by experts in the field. From classic literature to contemporary favorites, our reading groups provide excellent ways to experience the joy of reading.

Whether you’re looking to catch up on some great novels you may have missed or you’re interested in exploring a new writer or literary period, The Center for Fiction is a place for thought-provoking and in-depth discussions of great literature.


We strive to make our classes the most inviting and rewarding available, offering an intimate environment to study with award-winning, world-class writers. We keep our class sizes small, so each student benefits from personal attention from the instructor and gets workshopped at least twice during a course. We want students to feel that they’ve gotten a true person-to-person experience.

Each class is specially designed by the instructor, so whether you’re a fledgling writer or an MFA graduate polishing your novel, you’ll find a perfect fit here. Our brand-new, state of the art Brooklyn building allows us to offer four times the classes of our old space. Starting in 2016 we began offering one-day boot camps for students who can’t make the weekly commitment of a full course, or want to concentrate deeply on a specific aspect of craft. We have also been expanding our online courses, conducted fully in the digital realm via WetInk, so students who aren’t near New York can be a part of our community.
