For NYC Area People New To The Writers Studio
NYC Level 1

In NYC Level 1, our short weekly exercises are designed to stimulate students’ imaginations while also teaching a lot of nuts-and-bolts narrative strategies. Students learn that a narrative voice is born out of conscious creation and is not merely the voice we use when speaking or keeping a journal. We encourage students to turn autobiographical fragments into publishable work by using different narrative personas to tell their story in fiction, poetry, or memoir.

NYC Level 1 starts 12/3 ❤ spots open>. More info and registration here. 
Brooklyn Level 1 starts 1/9 <half-full>. More info and registration here.
