Founded and directed by Pulitzer Prize winning poet, 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.

Beginning students are offered a supportive environment and community in which they learn how to turn autobiographical fragments into successful narrative and poetic pieces. Advanced students are offered technical guidance and professional criticism while working on longer pieces.

All writers new to The Writers Studio start at Level I, unless they have earned an MFA in creative writing or have four or more publications in established literary journals, in which case they may register for Level II.
