Announcing Catapult’s Winter 2017 Writing Courses co-presented by Electric Literature
Is your New Year’s resolution to get writing again? Or to finally finish that project you’ve been working on for years? Enroll in a writing course at Catapult co-presented by Electric Literature and put these cold winter months to good use. Transform your ideas into a novel, short story, TV script, or nonfiction essay, while getting feedback from our dedicated instructors and a talented group of peers.
The Village Voice named us the “best place to meet your literary heroes and get better at writing, too” in their 2016 Best of NYC issue — and our students tend to agree. In less than two years, Catapult’s writing program now has over 500 accomplished alumni. They have been accepted into prestigious MFA programs, publish regularly in variety of literary magazines, and a few have even signed book deals with publishers like Little, Brown and Merit Press.
We host classes online and live in our New York City offices with some of today’s top working writers and publishing industry professionals. Writing courses are open to writers of all levels who are eager to join a dedicated community. Winter and spring classes are already filling fast, so we recommend applying ASAP.
This winter, we’re offering a mix of fiction and nonfiction workshops and single-day intensives, in addition to an online class on TV writing, a twelve-week novel generator, and a book proposal workshop. This season’s instructors include Elissa Bassist, Ryan Britt, Chloe Caldwell, Scott Cheshire, Garrard Conley, Nicole Dennis-Benn, Michele Filgate, Grant Ginder, Elizabeth Isadora Gold, Tanwi Nandini Islam, Mira Jacob, Mitchell S. Jackson, Jolie Kerr, Porochista Khakpour, Rachel Khong, Alex Mar, Manjula Martin, Scott O’Connor, Shelly Oria, Kristen Radtke, Christine Reilly, A.O. Scott, Heather Sellers, Jade Sharma, Nadja Spiegelman, Leigh Stein, Lynn Steger Strong, Rachel Syme, Rufi Thorpe, and more.
