NY Writers Coalition

NY Writers Coalition offers free creative writing workshops for youth and adults whose voices are not heard from often enough in society. Our general operating support has allowed NYWC to expand its programs to serve more than 1,200 people a year in unique and supportive writing workshops, while connecting its diverse writers to a broader audience through readings and publications.  A one-time supplemental challenge grant in 2016 has allowed NYWC to hire its first-ever development director.


“For me this workshop has helped me through so much. I’ve been here since I was 11 and now I’m 16… This workshop has helped me realize my imagination and how I can use it in so many ways. I learned how to express my feelings a lot better than what I had been used to. It also helped me be confident with myself and my work… I’ve made awesome friends and bonds with people…we are like one big family…I learned so much from [the] workshop and hopefully I will continue to.”
