ABOUT THE WRITERS STUDIO

“People often ask me where they should go to study writing; hearing the diverse and remarkable readings from the Writers Studio faculty members, I know just what my answer will be.”

-JULIA GLASS, National Book Award winner for Three Junes (Random House 2002)

Founded in 1987 by Philip Schultz, The Writers Studio welcomes beginning and experienced fiction writers and poets to ongoing writing workshops designed to help them discover and nurture their own voices. Hailed by The New York Times as "the most personal of the programs," The Writers Studio is founded on the belief that when the desire to write is strong enough, anyone can learn the craft necessary for full creative expression.

For the past 26 years The Writers Studio has developed a unique approach to teaching writing by encouraging students "to try on voices" and attempt a variety of different narrative techniques as a way of discovering their own material and personal voices. Students take a single 10-week workshop, or continue through a series of increasingly challenging classes designed to help them reach their full potential.

The Writers Studio offers classes in New York City, Tucson, San Francisco, Amsterdam, and online during four 10-week sessions per year. We also offer individual tutorials for writers who would prefer to work one-on-one with a teacher, either in person or via Skype or phone.
