New Workshop Membership Options

Morningside Writers Workshop will begin offering six-month and one-year renewable memberships for potential workshop members in the metro New York City area. The new six-month memberships are for writers unable to commit for an extended stay due to work, travel or family obligations. The new plan will also keep the workshops fresh and innovative.

A new fee structure will be applied as well. Six-month memberships are eighty dollars ($80), and one-year memberships are one hundred and twenty dollars ($120).These options are still less expensive than other writing groups or classes in New York City that have eight, ten, or fifteen participants, and have limited individual feedback time. We feel that six months or one year at the above rates is more realistic in this economy. Other workshops last eight or ten weeks, with rates that range between three hundred and four hundred and fifty dollars.

If interested in applying to the Fiction, Speculative Fiction, Creative Nonfiction/Memoir, or Screenwriting/Playwriting workshops, please visit the site and submit your application soon!
