On various Saturdays and some weeknights, Queens writers will study and practice craft with some of the best writers from our area. These classes focus on a particular theme, craft technique, or element of poetry, memoir, essay, or fiction writing and include reading, discussion, and lots of writing time. These classes are not critique groups and no one will tell anyone what they were doing wrong with their writing—these classes are a chance to be inspired, to meet fellow writers, and to write, write, write. They are free and open to everyone, no matter their experience with writing or number of publications.
Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, in-person Newtown Literary classes are postponed until further notice. We do have instructors and classes on deck through the end of the year which will likely all take place online.
Click through our free writing class offerings below to RSVP and receive instructions on how to join. Stay safe and WRITE ON!
Newtown Literary is committed to providing accessibility for people with various dis/abilities. Please email us at least two weeks before an event if you have any accommodation requirements.
These classes brought to you in partnership with Queens Library and is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
