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.
