Award-winning classes by writers, for writers. When you enroll in a writing workshop at Catapult, you join a community that extends beyond the classroom

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—open to writers emerging and established, with affordable, day-job-friendly classes that are led, always, by writers and publishing professionals at the center of the cultural conversation.

All of our creative writing classes are taught by working writers who have published at least one book or have amassed bylines innational publications. Editing and publishing classes are led by industry professionals at the height of their careers. Our instructors are in the center of contemporary literary culture, and they are not just teachers, but mentors to the writers who take our classes.

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.
