THE WRITERS STUDIO- Writing workshops & Students Publish & Reading at Greenwich House Music School
“Celebrating 26 years of helping writers reach their potential”

>> “I APPROACH MY TEACHING WITH A TREMENDOUS EMPATHY FOR MY STUDENTS’ DESIRE TO BE WRITERS AND TO BE A SUCCESS. And their success is something I take very seriously. I tell my students simply, if you continue to work hard, continue to read, continue to check your ego at the door, you will see it show in the improvement of your writing.” – Whitney Porter, NYC Level I instructor.  Whitney’s next 10-week workshop in fiction and poetry begins Monday, February 25. (You can join the class up to two weeks late – Space is limited to 12 students). To register or view a complete schedule.

>> WHITNEY PORTER IS AN EXCELLENT INSTRUCTOR. I have learned a great deal in her class. She has encouraged all of us, giving critiques we can benefit from so we may develop into better writers. ” Janet Ivari, NYC Level I Student. Find out what other students are saying about the Writers Studio.
