Mic Check is an opportunity for our workshop attendees and leaders to share writing they’ve created in our virtual workshops with the wider NY Writers Coalition community—and the public!

Past Events


NYWC and Novella will begin a collaborative partnership throughout 2023 launching a series of IRL events for underrepresented writers. Known as Communals, these gatherings will be a mixture of generative writing and storytelling, held at the storied art institution, Pen + Brush, located in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City.


NY Writers Coalition’s annual Write-A-Thon is a daylong fundraiser and writing retreat all in one.
