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. The school’s Advisory Board consists of acclaimed writers and editors: Kathryn Court, Carl Dennis, Jennifer Egan, Julia Glass, Bill Henderson, Edward Hirsch, Matthew Klam, Amanda Moretti, Robert Pinsky, Grace Schulman, and in memorium, Yehuda Amichai. Classes are offered in New York City, New Jersey, Tucson, San Francisco, Amsterdam, and Online.
