Founded in 1987 by Philip Schultz, The Writers Studio welcomes beginning and experienced fiction writers and poets to ongoing writing workshops designed to help them discover and nurture their own voices. Hailed by The New York Times as "the most personal of the programs," The Writers Studio is founded on the belief that when the desire to write is strong enough, anyone can learn the craft necessary for full creative expression.

For the past 30 years The Writers Studio has developed a unique approach to teaching writing by encouraging students "to try on voices" and attempt a variety of different narrative techniques as a way of discovering their own material and personal voices. Students take a single 10-week workshop, or continue through a series of increasingly challenging classes designed to help them reach their full potential.

It was a truly amazing class and I'm so glad I took a leap of faith and signed up for it. Scott Hunter was a great instructor, extremely friendly, accommodating and always allowed the conversations and discussion to flow smoothly in a manner that was informative, insightful, critical and encouraging.

If you're someone who's shy and not confident about your writing this class will help you get over your fears and boost your confidence. Getting feedback for your writing is crucial to improving your work. The instructor, Scott, is honest and kind, and very encouraging. We had a great group who took critiquing very seriously and was also encouraging and supportive of each other. Highly recommend taking this workshop.
