Gotham Writers Workshop is a creative home in New York City and Online where writers develop their craft and come together in the spirit of discovery and fellowship. We’ve been teaching creative writing to students since 1993.

We believe that everyone has a story to tell. Indeed, many stories. Keep your eyes and mind open and you will find them everywhere. And we can help you tell your stories better.

Whether you’re a new writer looking to explore, or an experienced writer looking to strengthen your skills, our classes will help you reach your goals—through clear instruction on elements of craft, critique in a safe environment, and a structured process that keeps your work on track.

We also teach Business Writing, with the same verve and expertise we bring to our creative writing courses.

We strive to give each student the best possible learning experience. Class size is strictly limited so you never get lost in a crowd. And our instructors are consistently excellent—working writers who are as skilled at teaching as they are at writing.

Thousands of people have been enriched by the Gotham experience. It’s why we’ve been around for over twenty-five years.

Extremely basic. Could be good if you’ve never taken a writing course. If you have, this will be too fundamental for you.

I learned a lot from this class! I recommend it to anyone who is starting out, but does not know where to begin. Our Instructor, Joe, was very informative and encouraging through out the whole process. He helped create a safe environment were we could share ideas, try new things, and grow from our mistakes.

Attended: Screenwriting Level 1 One Day Intensive


This was an excellent intensive one-day intro to screenwriting, including the development and classification of ideas, the process of taking a script from idea through various stages to the actual writing of the draft, an in-depth discussion of structure and the way it has changed over time (from the 1970s to today, for example), and a quick but informative overview of the software used in the actual screenwriting process. Loved it, would highly recommend.

The instructor's extensive knowledge of grammar was impressive. She gave detailed explanations on the uses of grammar in sentences and modeled how to break down each sentence to find the different parts of speech. Punctuation's and its uses reviewed. After each discussion, students were given the opportunity to correct various grammatical errors with sentence structures, as well as, punctuation errors. Feedback was given with additional examples. The atmosphere in class was congenial.
