Workshops are typically 10 weeks long, although depending on the course it may vary. If you don’t have time to take a long class, you can always take a one day intensive course or if you prefer to do the class from your own home rather than to travel to one of their locations, you can always do an online course.

Speaking from personal experience, Gotham’s writing courses are a pleasure to do.

Each of the instructors is highly qualified and is there to guide you as you explore your talents.
