>> “ONE OF THE THINGS I RESPECT ABOUT THE WRITERS STUDIO METHOD IS THAT IT INSPIRES STUDENTS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH BEAUTIFUL WRITING. The writing prompts that I give are based on short excerpts from some of the best contemporary writing; our discussions of the techniques that make these excerpts so successful, so moving to us as readers, are practical and richly specific about how the craft in each piece works. I guide my students to be just as connected and skillful in their own writing” — Rebecca Gee’s NYC Level I begins March 12 and March 27.

>> “I ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO LET GO OF THEIR IDEAS ABOUT SUCCESS AND FAILURE, and to give themselves over instead to the exploration of craft and their own process. I believe that craft is the vessel that will take writers furthest. That, plus a sense of humor.” Rachael Nevins’ Online Level I begins March 19.

>> “WHAT REALLY STOOD OUT TO ME WAS HOW LUCKY I AM TO HAVE YOU AS AN INSTRUCTOR – and to have such a supportive group as the one we’ve had this term! You always emphasize and try to build on what people are doing right, whether in their exercises or in their comments in class–but at the same time know who much to press to move someone forward.” — A student in Lisa Bellamy’s Advanced Poetry Class. Lisa’s NYC Advanced Poetry begins 3/11
