Founded in 1993 by two passionate and highly trained wordsmiths, Gotham Writers' Workshop caters to seasoned sentence sculptors and grammar greenhorns alike with a variety of specialized courses and one-day intensives. Each teacher on Gotham's faculty is a veteran of the literary world, with experience maneuvering through the land mines of writer's block, reveling in the victories of being published, and dodging the shrapnel of the dangling participle. Misty-eyed dreamers can choose a class in fiction or poetry writing, while film buffs can opt for a session in screenwriting to train their pens to drip engaging dialogue, clear character development, and ingenious plotlines about psychic mutant grandmas. Business writing classes help professionals construct letters and memos good enough to go up on the boss's refrigerator. Those looking to be blanketed in the basics can crawl into the Write It Right! workshop, which offers a refresher course in grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and word usage.

Each one-day intensive takes place on a Saturday, lasts seven hours, and includes a mixture of brief lectures and writing exercises to get students learning and writing quickly and creatively. Participants should bring a notepad and a durable writing utensil, such as a pen, pencil, jumbo crayon, or a pocket-sized stenographer.
