Award-winning classes by writers, for writers.

We believe in community, mentorship, rigorous feedback, and revision. We know writers need other writers to thrive. Catapult’s writing program is like an MFA program without barriers—affordable, day-job-friendly classes for emerging and established writers.

Our instructors are not just teachers, but mentors. Our creative writing classes are taught by acclaimed, accomplished writers. Editing and publishing classes are led by industry professionals at the height of their careers. Many of our students have gone on to build successful freelance careers, find literary agents, and land book deals.

Classes meet online or in-person at our NYC offices. Our weekly workshops are intimate, with small class sizes. We also offer a variety of generative day-long master classes and intensives focused on the practical aspects of the writing life. Long after class is complete, Catapult promotes our students' work and celebrates their successes.
