Helping Writers to Rise and Thrive

Wine & Write-In

Tuesdays, 5:30-7 p.m., Starts March 5, 2019
Stephanie Lehmann
Six weeks, $245 (includes wine and cheese)

If you’d like writing inspiration but don’t want the hassle of homework or the curtain of critique, our new Tuesday evening Wine & Write-In might be the perfect thing for you. Swing by after work or before dinner for inspiring and motivating writing prompts served up with wine and cheese in an ultra-relaxed atmosphere. This is your chance to engage in the writing process with acclaimed novelist and teacher extraordinaire Stephanie Lehmann.

Each week, you can share your pieces with the group or cultivate an aura of mystery — the choice is yours. Either way, you will meet new writer friends, go home with new work, and look forward to the following Tuesday. Open to writers of fiction, non-fiction, and everything in between. All skill levels welcome.

Stephanie worked for many years as a literary agent and editor at the Elaine Koster Literary Agency. Her novel ASTOR PLACE VINTAGE (Simon and Schuster) was selected by Library Journal as a best novel in 2013, and by Kirkus Reviews for best summer reading.

Stephanie’s earlier novels include THE ART OF UNDRESSING (Penguin), YOU COULD DO BETTER (Penguin), ARE YOU IN THE MOOD (Kensington), and THOUGHTS WHILE HAVING SEX (Kensington). Her work has been translated into Italian, Turkish, Russian, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Chinese, and German. She has taught novel writing at Mediabistro and at, where her essays have been published. Musings about the history of fashion, feminine hygiene products, and many more fascinating subjects can be found on her website,

Stephanie lives and laughs in New York City.
