We are the leading private creative writing school in New York City and online. Professional writers present workshops in more than a dozen forms of writing. Our interactive online classes, selected as “Best of the Web” by Forbes, have attracted thousands of aspiring writers from across the United States and more than one hundred countries.
The school was founded in New York City in 1993 by two writers, Jeff Fligelman and David Grae. Prior to starting the school, both Fligelman and Grae had received graduate degrees in creative writing and had taught writing at a variety of schools and universities. Fligelman and Grae founded the school so that they could provide students comprehensive classes on the craft of writing, which they had been unable to find anywhere else at the time.
The result was the development of highly structured classes, which employ three main teaching tools:
Not a safe space to share your work. Didn't encourage creativity. Awkward.
Really helpful and pretty eye-opening as well.
Francesca was an amazing teacher. She really helped many of us unlock our creativity. I found her encouragements and feedback very useful during the course of the class.
Great class, the instructor was helpful and so was everyone else taking the class. To be honest, I wish we had more time. Nonetheless, not only did I get to focus my blog's topic, I also created a list of possible blog ideas. All the information I learned in this workshop was very helpful. Take it if you are serious about your blog.
The writing prompts were really geared towards fiction and I wish there had been more balance with other types of writing
It was a good class but very much a basic covering of fiction writing. It's good for practicing styles but not refining your work.
This class was awesome! Well worth the money, as the advice and instruction helped me figure out the path ahead for essay writing and how to refine and improve my work
A fun way to spend a Friday evening - so impressed by the caliber of other writers' work... I thought the main benefit would be in practicing writing but I think it's actually from hearing everyone else's and thinking about what makes theirs so good
