Adult Writing Workshops consist of multiple small-group sessions led by experienced writer-instructors from the fields of fiction and non-fiction writing. Workshop activities include individual writing exercises, group feedback, and repeat artwork visitation in the galleries to provide consistent inspiration and encouragement for novice and veteran writers alike.
Writing along the Himalayas with Nina Goss

These visits will provide participants with ideas and impressions that will be used to create a personal narrative. All materials are included. Registration required, as space is limited. $125; 10% off for members
Nina Goss earned a PhD and MFA at the University of Washington in Seattle. She teaches creative writing at Fordham's College at Sixty Program, and is co-editor of the book, Dylan at Play. She spent immeasurable hours watching her father try on suits in Barney's, where the Rubin Museum of Art is now located, which taught her the virtues of patience and endurance she now explores aesthetically in the same spot of ground. Karma!
“The experiential nature of this workshop allows me to be in the moment…It is also not about Hemingway, it is about me. Very liberating indeed…it is really allowing my writing to go to new places. It is as if you said the magic words that opened the door.”
