The Center for Fiction is the only nonprofit in the U.S. solely dedicated to celebrating fiction, and we work every day to connect readers and writers. We also feature workspace, grants, and classes to support emerging writers, reading groups on classic and contemporary authors, and programs to help get kids reading. We recognize the best in the world of fiction through our annual awards, and we operate one of the few independent fiction book shops in the country. We are also an important piece of New York City history, continuing to build our renowned circulating library collection, begun in 1820 by New York City merchants before the advent of the public library system.

Who I Follow

At The Center, each of our classes are thoughtfully customized to accommodate a wide variety of interests and needs, whether you’re interested in writing short stories, novels or more. Both beginners and intermediate/advanced writers can participate in a workshop led by some of today’s most exciting writers! Get to know our teachers with our series of interviews. 

Are you an aspiring writer who is just getting started?  A practicing writer who wants to recharge your creative battery? Need to trim the fat…from your stories? Join Myla Goldberg as she leads a 4-week class that will create a supportive environment for brainstorming and new writing. Don’t worry, Creative Bootcamp: Craft & Practice won’t involve any rigorous dieting! In fact, one of Myla’s favorite writing tools includes a sweet treat…

Favorite Writing Tools: Salted dark chocolate covered almonds

I’m currently reading: A Wrinkle in Time (with my 9-year-old daughter), Delicate, Edible Birds by Lauren Groff (with my mouth agape at how well she writes short stories)

If I could be a fictional character for a day, I’d choose: Moby Dick!  I’d get to stay under water for 90 minutes at a time, bite off a sea captain’s leg, and destroy several whaling ships.

You should take my class because: What’s neat about Creative Bootcamp is that it draws writers from varying experience levels, with writing exercises and craft discussions that work for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners. 

Why I love The Center for Fiction: The elevator.  Every time I ride up in it, I read something on its walls that makes me smile.
