The Writers Studio at 30

THE WRITERS STUDIO AT 30 collects work from over 100 authors to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the landmark New York school of creative writing and thinking.


I ALWAYS IMAGINE a possessive apostrophe in the name of The Writer’s Studio (or, “The Writers’ Studio”?): This undertaking is possessed by writers, as they are possessed by the art. And the word “Studio” is right, too, suggesting the workplace of visual art, of recording music, even of the movies. Study, not school. As a visitor learns, the vital emphasis is on the art.
— Robert Pinsky, United States Poet Laureate, 1997–2000

EVERY WEEK, I presented a new story. Finally something did click, the very thing that’s their specialty at The Writers Studio, emotional content. Before, my work was dead. When I brought in my breakthrough story, I felt I was carrying a weird animal in my bag. It was the first story I sold.
— Jennifer Egan, winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction
