What you'll learn in this creative writing class:

Do you wish there was a place you could go for writing inspiration and practice? Where you could hang out with other writers? Without needing to make a long-term commitment or spend a lot of money? With food and drink involved?

Gotham Write-Ins are that place.

Here’s what happens. The teacher gives an interesting writing prompt. Everyone writes for a while. Then volunteers may read their work aloud. You take a break and socialize over refreshments. Then you go through the process one more time. Then you socialize a little more. It’s two hours of writer’s heaven.

No pressure, no critiquing, no angst...

Just untamed creativity.

No matter what type of writing you favor, this class is sure to shake up some fresh ideas.

Please Note:
If you arrive more than 15 minutes late, you may be turned away. If you have pre-enrolled, you will be given credit for another session.

All Classes (except One-days and Write-Ins)
For a refund or credit, contact us two business days or more before your class starts. You can either choose to hold a full credit with us good for one year on other Gotham classes OR you can opt for a refund less a $25 administrative fee and your $25 registration fee ($50 total).

If you need to withdraw after your class has started (or one business day before it starts), you won’t receive a refund, but you’re welcome to a Gotham credit less the price of Week 1 and your $25 registration fee, but we need to hear from you two business days or more before Week 2 meets for that to happen. After that point, no credits are available.

One-day Intensives
You may reschedule a One-day Intensive one time, if you notify us before the class begins.

If you notify us two business days or more before your class begins, rescheduling is free. If you notify us less than two business days before your class begins, there is a $25 rescheduling fee. If you don’t notify us until after your class begins, we cannot reschedule you.

You may get a refund (minus a $50 fee) if you notify us two business days or more before your class begins.

If you withdraw two hours or more before it begins, you’re welcome to a full credit good for one year toward another Write-In. No refunds are available. If you simply don’t show up and don’t notify us in advance, you forfeit your money.

A few more things
Credits are valid for one year and cannot be changed into refunds down the road.Simply not attending class or notifying the instructor does not mean you've officially withdrawn.Some exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis for medical emergencies with a doctor's note.Refunds take up to six weeks to process.

Please understand, we can't issue a refund after classes have started, even if you miss your first class. Similarly, we can't offer you a credit one day before your second class or after that. We understand that other obligations get in the way of attending class, but these policies allow us to get other interested writers into class early enough to have a good experience, and this allows us to offer our classes at a reasonable price.

  • Students are allowed to join a class in the second week.
  • Only those who pay the tuition in full can be guaranteed a place in class.
  • Class dates and times may be subject to change. A substitute may be assigned or make-up classes added to the end of the term.

It was a lot of fun and very cool to hear from other writers! The prompts are simple, but can go in any direction you take them. My only issue is the class can be hit or miss depending on who is there. Not many people in our group wanted to share their writing, so we had more quiet time than I would have liked.

Wonderful exercise. I do wish the two writing prompts had been more different from each other. Both were kind of intense, and it would have been nice to have prompts that were different in tone to help us stretch our imaginations more. The teacher was lovely but didn't really ask a lot of questions to stoke discussions about the writings that were shared. Would have loved a more dynamic conversation to get our thoughts flowing. All in all, however, I enjoyed the process of writing without fear of judgment and I would attend again.

Gotham's Write-In is a phenomenal opportunity to spend short, dedicated time to write in a very positive environment with fellow writers.
