Looking for community, creativity, and time to center yourself during this time of social distancing? Join NY Writers Coalition’s free virtual creative writing workshops. No writing experience is necessary, and writers of all levels of experience are welcome. Our work amplifies the voices of historically unheard and under-resourced individuals in our society, and we welcome people of all backgrounds.
In each workshop, participants will write a piece in response to optional prompts provided by the workshop leader. You can use this time to journal; make a to-do list; write a letter; create a poem, stories, essays, plays, or rants—or anything else that pops out. After the writing time has elapsed, participants have the option—although they are not required— to share their brand-new pieces. Some workshops will make time for supportive, positive feedback, while others will only consist of writing and sharing what has been written.
NYWC’s workshops are based on the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method developed by Pat Schneider and are led by an experienced, trained workshop leader.
The workshops will be conducted via Zoom. You don’t need an account to join as we will provide a direct link, but will be prompted to download the Zoom app, on either your phone or computer.
At the moment we will be announcing new workshops daily. You will receive an email once a new workshop(s) is announced, with an Eventbrite link to RSVP—so if one workshop is full, please be on the lookout for future emails. Due to demand, please only sign up if you know you can make it. If a workshop is full, you’re welcome to join the waitlist on Eventbrite for that workshop.

Attendance is pay-as-you-wish. Because we believe a space for community, creativity, and connection is a basic human need for all of us, NYWC’s writing programs are always free to participants. If you would like to make a contribution to NYWC by donating towards this workshop, and further support our creative writing workshops, publications, workshop leaders, and virtual platforming, please feel free to pay the full price of the reservation; however, if you feel you are currently not in a position to pay that price, please use promo code HALF to get the ticket price half-off, or the promo code FREE to reserve for free.
Space is limited and our workshops have been filling up quickly, but we invite you to join the waitlist and keep your eyes open for more! Thank you for your support, and we’ll see you on the screen. Happy writing!
