We’re long overdue for a gathering of the brilliant minds that make NY Writers Coalition what it is today. Over the years we’ve been lucky to have our paths cross with the likes of poets Angel Nafis and Jon Sands. We got a taste of Royal Young’s debut Fame Shark this past summer and anxiously await the arrival of Vanessa Manko’s first novel come May. Plus, we can’t believe we get to work with artists like Judy Chicurel, Ben Dolnick, and Avra Wing week after week in our New York City writing workshops. This is NYWC’s community, built from the inside out.
Join us for NYWC Inside Out, a benefit reading and artist round table at KGB Bar (85 E. 4th Street, Manhattan), featuring a few of the talented poets and writers that make up NYWC’s arts and social justice circle. [Full bios here.]

When & Where
NY Writers Coalition
NY Writers Coalition Inc. (NYWC) empowers and enriches the lives of New Yorkers of all backgrounds and experiences through the art of creative writing.
Participants in our free and low-cost writing workshops in New York City become part of a community of peers, present their work publicly through NYWC’s readings and publications, and connect with broader audiences. Our workshops are particularly targeted toward underserved people, including youth, seniors, women, LGBT communities, people living with disabilities, people who are incarcerated or have been incarcerated, and others from traditionally silenced groups.
Writing and sharing their work with others in a safe atmosphere of respect and acceptance, NYWC’s writers discover the power of their own stories, gain confidence and a stronger sense of self, and become part of a creative and socially conscious community. We encourage creative writing as a long-term practice in the lives of our constituents, developing an audience and recognition of individuals’ artistic and personal value. We believe that everyone has a voice and a story and that the world is a better place when we respect, deeply listen to, and honor all of its citizens.
