• Creative Writing and Literature


    The New School offered the first academic creative writing workshop in 1931 and pioneered a new philosophy of education. Embrace the legacy and start your writing journey with continuing education courses offered throughout the year.

    The Creative Writing Program, taught through the workshop model, offers courses led by professional writers who work closely with students to strengthen them as writers of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and more.
