The Amsterdam branch operates like our flagship New York City school — with the same workshop model designed to help students discover and nurture their own voices by “trying on” many approaches to fiction and poetry. The Writers Studio Amsterdam welcomes students at all stages, from those who have only dreamed of writing fiction or poetry to those with MFAs hungry for additional serious, ongoing instruction. Students provide the desire to write and the willingness to learn, and we provide the structure, the technical know-how, the professional feedback and the nurturing community to enable them to reach their full potential. Amsterdam offers three levels of workshops, as well as readings and other public events. Teachers receive the same rigorous training as our New York City and online faculty. Students who travel frequently or have irregular work schedules are welcome to move back and forth among any of the on-site branches and the online workshops.
The Writers Studio Amsterdam classes meet once a week for 10 weeks at Boekhandel van Rossum, Beethovenstraat 32, 1077 JH Amsterdam. For more information, please call +31 (0)6-26 26 14 14 or email [email protected].
