If you've never written...
You may never have done any creative writing—not a word.
Why should you join Gotham Writers’ Workshop?
Because you’re interested in writing. You may even have an idea for a project. And, indeed, you can write.
You already have most of what it takes to be a writer. You can talk. You can write a letter or an e-mail message. You know what’s interesting, and you certainly know what’s boring.
For the rest of what it takes to be a writer, you’ll be in a noncompetitive atmosphere with a talented instructor who knows how to get results.
If you have writing experience...
You’re never too experienced to be in a writing workshop.
The fact is most people need writing workshops to keep writing—no matter what their level.
You will benefit from the expert instruction of a Gotham faculty member and from the insights of fellow writers.
A Gotham writing workshop immerses you in the world of storytelling and language—a world you need to be in if you wish to improve.
All of our writing workshops provide the creative atmosphere and intelligent guidance you need to keep writing—and to become a better writer.
If you're looking for a comprehensive course of study...
The Gotham Certificate Program immerses you in a structured program of basic and advanced workshops that provide the framework for learning the craft and for completing a substantial portfolio of writing. We offer certificates in Fiction Writing and Screenwriting. For more information see Certificate Program.
