About Our One-on-One Tutorial Program

The Writers Studio Tutorial Program is a great option for students who can’t attend weekly workshops or who want to concentrate on their work on a one-to-one basis with one of our teachers. We ask students to fill out an informal questionnaire in advance so that we can suggest a teacher whose interests and expertise will be a good match. For emerging writers, we teach the basics of narrative and an array of techniques that are essential to understanding the writing process. For more experienced writers, we can assist in solidifying a narrative voice in fiction or poetry through a series of exercises. For established writers, we can help in the shaping, completion or revision of a fiction or poetry manuscript. Our tutorials offer in-depth critiques of the student’s writing, as well as suggestions for outside reading to help students develop the craft necessary to achieve their goals.

Tutorials are available to students in the New York area, as well as throughout the world. The cost is $1,900 for 20 hours of teacher time, which is usually a mix of preparation and conversations or written feedback, to be determined by teacher and student. The tutorials can be conducted in person, via phone, Skype or e-mail (or some combination). Sessions generally take place once a week or once every two weeks over a period of time that does not exceed six months.

We are proud to report a strong track record with our tutorial students, many of whom have found publishers for the manuscripts we helped them complete.

I’ve been so, so happy with my tutorial. It has been an extraordinary creative experience, bringing enlightenment, encouragement and a marked change to my work. Perhaps the greatest gift has been renewed faith; in myself, as a writer. TUTORIAL STUDENT
