Our Writing Workshops

New York is a great place to be a writer, but it can also be an intimidating one. Here at The Center we strive to make our writing workshops the most inviting and rewarding in the city; not only will you get to study with celebrated authors in an intimate setting, but you'll receive access to our sky-lit Writers Studio and 85,000 volume library during your course. That's up to twelve weeks of unparalleled access to The Center's best writing resources!

Each class is specially designed by the instructor, so whether you're a fledgling writer or an MFA graduate polishing your novel, you'll find a perfect fit here. 

We're committed to making our classes accessible to all students. If you've taken a class with us before, you're entitled to 10% off tuition for any workshop or bootcamp this fall. We also allow students who cannot afford the full tuition cost for workshops up front to pay via monthly installments. If you are interested in either option, please contact Writing Programs Director Sara Batkie at sara@centerforfiction.org for more details.

We’re more than just a classroom, we're a community.
