NYC One-day Intensives

How much can you learn in one day? Plenty. As you will discover in one of our One-day Intensives in New York City.

The NYC One-day Intensives are seven-hour crash courses, giving you brief lectures that hit the high-points and writing exercises that let you immediately try your hand at what you've learned.

The Intensives provide an excellent overview of their fields, ideal for both the beginner and someone wanting a quick refresher course. Arrive in the morning with a desire to learn; leave in the evening as a more knowledgeable writer.

Students come from all over the world for our one-day Intensives. You're likely to be sitting near NYC locals as well as people from such far-flung places as Texas, Egypt, and Japan. If you're visiting NYC, here is some info on NYC hotels.

For those who can't make it to NYC, we have 3-week Online Intensives in Character, Dialogue, and Video Game Writing.

Intensives are open for writers of any level.

Students may reschedule a One-day Intensive one time. You must notify us two business days or more before your class starts or there will be a $25 fee to reschedule.
