Exciting new classes and events are added regularly! Please sign up for our newsletter to stay informed, and to receive tips on writing and publishing.

At FCWS, our mission is not only to help writers explore their creativity, but also to help them publish successfully and build a career. Our teachers, editors and agents are committed to helping writers achieve their writing goals. We invite top literary agents and editors to hold master classes (and accept manuscript submissions) regularly throughout the year.

In the fall of 2016 and spring of 2017, we will be hosting events with many New York City editors and agents. Please sign up (above) for our newsletter to be notified.
