Intensives

Intensives are fun and fast crash courses. You will learn so much in so little time.

Intensives come in three forms:

  • NYC One-days—Seven hours in one day (with lunch break). Brief lectures alternating with writing exercises. These are in-person classes.
  • Zoom—Two three-hour sessions on separate days. Brief lectures alternating with writing exercises. These classes are taught in real time via the Zoom videoconference platform.
  • Online—Three sessions (each lasting a week) on three consecutive weeks. Written lectures and weekly homework assignments. These classes take place online, not in real time.

(Not all Intensives available in all three forms.)

Intensives are open for writers of any level. Students must be 18 years or older.

Students may reschedule a One-day or Zoom Intensive one time.
