[The instructor] was informative and educational, yet fostered an atmosphere in
the class that lead to creativity, open dialogue, and laughter.
Fiction Writing Louis Bruno
If you want to write and receive interesting new approaches to writing, go! I learned more in the first two weeks than I did in all of college, and that cost $8,000 a semester!
Fiction Writing Gwendolyn Armitage
It's a great way to improve your pieces, experiment with style, and determine what readers enjoy.
Fiction Writing Isobel Scott
Try to imagine the Lord of the Rings trilogy without Gandalf. That's what my life was like before I met my instructor. I would say three words to anyone considering a Gotham course: Do it now!
Fiction Writing Rois Beal
If you want to feel encouraged to write, put yourself out there and sign up for a Gotham class.
Fiction Writing Colleen Dougherty Bronstein
It's awe-inspiring how much we can grow when we're surrounded by other writers and avid readers who lift each other up with encouragement and constructive critism.
Fiction Writing Isabelle Felix
psychology research assistant
That I was able to choose from the faculty someone relevant to my work—and who proved himself to be exceedingly capable as an instructor—was a ringing endorsement for Gotham Writers.
Fiction Writing Michael Connors
The teacher has inspired to me to such an extent that I feel like I can actually complete my novel now.
Fiction Writing Linda Johnson
high school English teacher
This course was exactly what I needed. Now I feel so inspired and motivated to keep writing, hopefully to the point where I'll eventually complete my first book. The instructor's down-to-earth, informative, and very encouraging style of teaching made all the difference. Was well worth it. Can't wait to do it again!
Fiction Writing Franca DiMaso
Supportive and incredibly instructive, with enough backup material for a
year of study.
Fiction Writing Gary Boyd
I came out of the class with a short story that, after a few revisions, I will feel confident in submitting to a publication.
Fiction Writing Mitch Herzog
The most fun three hours of my week, every week. In just a couple of months, I learned an incredible amount about the craft of fiction, and laughed heartily while doing it.
Fiction Writing Dodd Ellsworth
The class truly helped me unlock an imaginative part of myself that I didn't know was there, as well as dismantle some fears and reservations about creative writing.
Fiction Writing Kelly Griego
This course taught me how to structure my inspired rambling into a coherent, potent piece of writing. I got a lot of information and great inspiration to continue some past projects and begin new ones.
Fiction Writing Mark Hayes
You are introduced to the basic tenents of fiction writing, but are allowed to attack them one at a time so that you aren't overwhelmed and can just let your ideas flow.
Fiction Writing Jennifer Feuerbach
The teaching is some of the very best I have ever experienced. Far superior to much of what was given to me in graduate school or seminary. The teacher is gifted, gracious, patient, perceptive, and makes the craft accessible and doable.
Fiction Writing Thomas Farrington
I was wary of signing up blindly to something on the Internet, but this is a real class that was far better than most I took in college and grad school. It was the creative writing class I always wanted to take but was too scared to show up for in person!
Fiction Writing Lisa Bloom
Heady, exciting, and extremely beneficial. Our classes always had a perfect balance of critique, praise, and instruction.
Fiction Writing Chad Brinkman
guest teaching artist, NYU
The teacher is extremely smart and insightful and has given me terrific help with my writing.
