Cambridge Writers’ Workshop
The Cambridge Writers’ Workshop began as a creative writing community in Cambridge, MA. Founded by writers Rita Banerjee and Diana Norma Szokolyai at Harvard University in 2008, the workshop is a forum for fostering communities of dedicated writers and encouraging creative expression in the literary arts. The CWW is all-inclusive and open to all emerging and established writers in Cambridge, MA and beyond. Since 2008, the CWW has been run by directors Rita Banerjee and Diana Norma Szokolyai. Current Executive Board members include Gregory Crosby, Jonah Kruvant, Viktor Pachas, Kathleen Spivack, our manager Alex Carrigan, and our interns Anna-Celestrya Carr, Samantha Facciolo, and Shannon O. Sawyer. In 2011, the workshop expanded to include on-line creative writing courses and writing retreats. CWW has participated in the Mass Poetry Festival, Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn Lit Crawl, Manhattan Lit Crawl, and the annual AWP Conference, and has partnered with the Château de Sacy, Château de Verderonne, and the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. All writers from novices to professionals, who are looking for a serious writing community, are welcome to join the Cambridge Writers’ Workshop.
Cambridge Writers’ Workshop will soon release their debut anthology, CREDO: An Anthology of Manifestos and Sourcebook for Creative Writing, to be published by C&R Press in March of 2018. This collection features creative writing pieces–from 51 new and established authors–about the creative process, writing, and identity.
