This is the Master Class taught in New York City by Philip
Schultz. Students are encouraged to recognize their own strengths
and limitations as writers so that they may consciously develop
narrators, and consequently a writing style, that is uniquely
suited to them. The goal of this class is to help students
discover a way of writing that can be sustained throughout
their lives. Students at this level, while continuing to do
exercises from the Craft Class, routinely complete poems and
stories to submit for publication, and work toward creating
a book-length manuscript. Teachers in the school also participate
in this workshop.
Open only to those students who have completed Level IV and
by permission of the teacher.
“The workshop has definitely given a structure to my writing. It has also made my writing life more challenging when I'm stuck for ideas, in that it provides a wonderful springboard or launch pad. Most of my short stories have begun as Writers Studio exercises.”
