I've taken writing classes in half a dozen universities and none have been as comprehensive and informative.
Fiction Writing Mark Alpert
It was great taking this course online. I am now writing short stories. This is something that I have always wanted to do. Without the course, I am not sure when I would have done it. Taking the course online made it possible.
Fiction Writing Eugene Lowe
This course has given me the boost of self-confidence that I desperately needed.
Fiction Writing Joni Shavlik
personal trainer/aerobic instructor
We were given clear, concrete tools. The course did a great job demystifying the art of fiction writing and fostering confidence. The instructor brought complex concepts down to earth. I will miss coming here every week.
Fiction Writing Miguel Ferrer
Fiction Writing II took my writing skill set to the next level. Whereas Fiction Writing I covered generalities, Fiction Writing II probed deeper, giving more detail and insight into the art of writing. I have benefited tremendously since October, when I enrolled in your writing program.
Fiction Writing Gene Venditti
Thanks for this course. I no longer fear an empty page, I attack it.
Fiction Writing Daniel Kahn
I'll probably go back to them many times over the coming years.
Fiction Writing Ranjan Das
vice president, software company
The instructor made a difficult and scary experiment turn into a lifelong hobby.
Fiction Writing Ken Shea
Gotham Writers’ Workshop gave me a reason to write, the jump start I needed. It helped me overcome the insecurities about my writing that had kept me silent for years.
Fiction Writing Andrew Oliver
manager, client accounting
I am just getting back into writing after being away from it for 25 years. The course helped to refresh my memory and to pinpoint the weak and strong areas in my writing.
Fiction Writing Mary Jones
I love the online experience, and each class has been better than the last. I like the freedom of an online class, and as I have taken progressively more advanced classes, I have discovered the class interaction has also increased and been very good indeed.
Fiction Writing Victoria Butler
Great lectures, with concise and clear tips on how to handle the major elements of the craft. The topics selected for the course were absolutely the right ones for a course of this level.
Fiction Writing Brad Reddersen
I have read several books about the writer's craft, but the excellence of the lectures written by the instructor for this course stood out for me: She somehow found fresh angles, used particularly apt examples, and provided trenchant advice for writing and revision.
Fiction Writing Angela Hahn
I loved the experience of taking this class. For someone who wants to write but lacks confidence, this is a wonderful vehicle. The fact that I have already signed up for Fiction II and this is only Week 9 speaks for itself.
Fiction Writing Carllie B. Fox
I learned a lot about how to approach writing. It was analogous to a drawing course I had taken once—everyone can fiddle around, but if someone shows you a different way of looking at things or approaching things, your quality and depth improves.
Fiction Writing Kyla Terhune
The class was truly inspiring. I spent most of the week thinking about our next writing assignment—the class was the high point of my week.
Fiction Writing Leah Frankel
I learned that I did have something to say—that the simplest bit of information could be turned into a story.
Fiction Writing Judy Freni
This is my third Gotham Writers’ Workshop class. I never wrote a short story before the first. Now I’m hooked and can feel myself improving.
Fiction Writing Colleen Murphy
As a former teacher, I thought I knew how to read critically—but I learned that I had more to learn! The lectures were excellent and the assignments helpful and on the mark.
Fiction Writing Karen Albrethsen
The structure of the course is very well defined and effective. I hated to miss class.
