When Jennifer Egan, Writers Studio Advisory Board Member and former student, spoke with The New Yorker, she had this to say about The Writers Studio:
“I joined a workshop with Philip Schultz—the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, who now has a kind of institute called the Writers Studio…. It was a fantastic, reasonably priced workshop…. I realized that Phil’s focus was on getting at emotional truth, which, in a way, matters more than anything else. If you can’t make people feel at least interest or curiosity, you’ve got nothing. And I think that approach was exactly what I needed… I finally wrote a story that… ended up in my collection, and it was also the first story I sold—to The North American Review.”
