Gotham Writers Workshop is a creative home in New
York City and Online where writers develop their craft and come together in the
spirit of discovery and fellowship. We’ve been teaching creative writing to
students since 1993.



We believe that everyone has a story to tell.
Indeed, many stories. Keep your eyes and mind open and you will find them
everywhere. And we can help you tell your stories better.



Whether you’re a new writer looking to explore, or
an experienced writer looking to strengthen your skills, our classes will help
you reach your goals—through clear instruction on elements of craft, critique
in a safe environment, and a structured process that keeps your work on track.



We also teach Business Writing, with the same verve
and expertise we bring to our creative writing courses.



We strive to give each student the best possible
learning experience. Class size is strictly limited so you never get lost in a
crowd. And our instructors are consistently excellent—working writers who are as
skilled at teaching as they are at writing.



Thousands of people have been enriched by the
Gotham experience. It’s why we’ve been around for over twenty-five years.

Paul was engaging, encouraging, and you can tell he loves what he does, which spilled over into the way he interacted with us. Overall, great class— presented well, easy to follow with time for examples, short exercises, and questions. I really enjoyed it.

This instructor had a wealth of info but I do wish he had used more modern or current day examples for resources as opposed to the classics that were mentioned.

It was a great class! I learned plenty and am inspired as a result to forge ahead with my writing. I only wish we'd had more time to cover more of the material in detail. I think a three-day intensive might allow for that.

Fantastic class! I've never taken a Creative Writing class before so I was a bit nervous but Janet Flora made it very comfortable as well as stimulating. She was a pleasure to have as a teacher. I learned a lot and feel very encouraged to continue to pursue creative writing. Great introduction and excellent experience. I will definitely be taking another class!

I love that we were guided within the full 6 weeks on everything from Getting Started/Getting back to Writing Again to How to Publish/Get Yourself Out There and in between we learned great tips and ways to strengthen our writing. The Instructor Divya was also great, very patient, clear and encouraging. A great session for first time writers or for those who always used to write and are trying to find their way back!
