Gotham Writers Workshop is a creative home in New York City and Online where writers develop their craft and come together in the spirit of discovery and fellowship. We’ve been teaching creative writing and business writing since 1993.

Each Gotham class puts you in a community of writers, and we also offer ways to join the writing community beyond our classes. Writing is a solo act, but it’s helpful, even necessary, to connect with fellow writers.

Gotham Writer's Workshop was a godsend for me. When I started taking classes, I worked in the travel industry, which made keeping regular hours impossible. The instructor was giving with her time, encouraging with her praise, and thorough when it came to sharing her knowledge. I'd highly recommend Gotham Writer's Workshop to anyone interested in exploring their dreams of writing.
