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.

Shamar Hill is an excellent teacher. Period. End paragraph. He was attentive to each of his students’ individual skill level and goal; not an easy thing to do. He was inspiring and encourage. What more can you ask for in a teacher.

Wonderful course that covered a breadth of topics, ranging from true storytelling techniques to an overview of the "business". Seth is an open, encouraging instructor that engaged the room in discussion, applied no unnecessary pressure, and came with many examples, both familiar and new. Great way to spend a day and kick your writing into gear.

While the instructor was awesome, the class itself was a joke. This is for people who are learning English for the first time - NOT - for writers or professionals of any kind. While this class was marketed as a great "refresher" for anyone, it is absolutely not. We learned what a noun was, how to capitalize words at the beginning of sentences, when to use question marks, etc. Honestly, if you graduated middle school, you will not gain anything from this class. Definitely do not waste your money!

This was not a beginner class at all, but the quality of the material was fantastic. I did find the instruction a bit boring and hard to follow but luckily I had taken writing classes before so I was able to "hang on" throughout. I wouldn't recommend to someone who has never had any formal experience with writing.

The instructor Cullen Thomas was extremely knowledgable about the subject of memoir writing. I was also impressed that he remembered everyone's name after an initial introduction.I will definitely explore other curses available in memoir writing.
