WriteOn NYC aims to develop two communities simultaneously. First, we provide passionate writing teachers to underserved New York City school children. Second, we prepare MFA creative writing candidates for careers in teaching and non-profit work, and provide financial support throughout their graduate studies.
One fellowship. Two missions.
Literature helps us to see beyond the quotidian and increases our capacity for empathy. At WriteOn, we want to make literature more accessible to kids, both as readers and writers.
