The Zoom classes unite students from all over the world at Gotham—New York City’s most well-established writing school.

The Zoom classes happen on videoconference, in “real time.” Very much like an in-person class except everyone is on a computer or device in their own space. The Zoom software is free and simple to use.

You can take a Zoom writing class from anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection. The majority of our Zoom students are located in the U.S. but we also draw students from practically every country in the world.

Tech support will be available. Out of respect for everyone’s privacy, the Zoom sessions are not recorded.

Class size is limited, so that all students get personal attention:

  • Most classes – maximum 14 students
  • Intensives – maximum 18 students

Explore our catalogue of writing courses. And here you will find information on Gotham's various class formats and our teaching philosophy.

We also offer free events on Zoom (and in NYC).
