Creative Writing

The Beekman School Offers Creative Writing Classes

The Creative Writing class is aimed at developing students’ reading and writing skills. We will examine the works of literary authors, poets, journalists, and essayists with a view to creating our own work. The course will include readings about the craft of writing, and exercises aimed at cultivating the writer’s voice and style.

In this class students will read a variety of literary genres including excerpts from longer works, essays, short stories, poems and articles.

Students will be free to explore a variety of topics in varying genres. Grammar and mechanics will be addressed throughout the course, and will be discussed in the context of writing style. We will use several techniques to help students develop their expertise in various aspects of creative writing.

We are welcoming students to class this fall either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.
