Award-winning classes by writers, for writers.

We believe in community and mentorship, in rigorous feedback and revision. We know that an inspiring live event can be just as sustaining as finishing a draft, and that writers need other writers to thrive. Think of Catapult’s writing program as an MFA program without barriers—affordable, day-job-friendly classes open to emerging and established writers.

All of our creative writing classes are taught by writers and publishing professionals at the center of literary culture. Fiction and nonfiction workshop leaders have published at least one book (or have a title under contract) or have amassed bylines in national publications. Editing and publishing classes are led by industry professionals at the height of their careers. Our instructors are not just teachers, but mentors.

Classes meet online and in-person at our NYC offices. All of our six-week workshops are intimate, ranging in size from 5 to 8 writers, and we 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, we promote our students' work and celebrate their successes.
