    Many voices. One community.

    The New School offered the first academic creative writing workshop in 1931 and pioneered a new philosophy of education. The idea: Students would make their own lives and their own stories part of their education. Today The New School continues to celebrate and cultivate daring and diverse new voices. The value of this approach is reflected in the publications and achievements of our graduates and faculty, updated regularly on our blog.
