Welcome to The Writer’s Rock! We’re a group of writers and artists who come together to brainstorm, talk craft, write, workshop, and build a vibrant and inclusive literary community.
You’ll find enthusiastic and focused attention for your writing here. Each curated, genre-specific workshop and private session at the Writer’s Rock is led by one of our extended family of instructors, all published writers, produced playwrights or active performers in their disciplines. These instructors are committed to fostering a warm and rigorous writing environment for all writers, no matter your age, background or goals.
We’re here for the writers knee-deep in their fifth drafts and the ones itching to share their stories for the first time. We’re here for the artists raising children or working their hearts out in other fields. We’re here for the college student or the corporate professional looking for consultation on personal statements or essays, or the office manager in search of smart ways to enrich your next employee event with storytelling. No matter where your story comes from, we have a space for you to tell it on one of our well-worn, mismatched couches. And if you can’t make it in person, our online workshops provide the same warmth and attention from the comfort of your own laptop.
Friends, family, and the general public are invited every month to one of our intimate salons throughout the city to celebrate writers’ polished personal stories, musical numbers, prose, poetry and comedy. We’re excited for you to check it out.
Our community is rooted in the cultural bedrock of New York City. From that bedrock we’ve carved a space for writers to gather, a quiet place where visions and voices can emerge.
This is The Writer’s Rock. Let’s get together and write.
