We are not currently open for applications. Please check back in midsummer to apply to our fall & winter workshops.
Throughout the year, Winter Tangerine hosts four-day workshop intensives in New York City that aim to kickstart your creative practice. We center close-knit, empathic community, and offer tools to help you approach the page with vigor & play.
We design our workshops for writers who want to challenge themselves and their work. We won't teach you how to write: instead, we want to collectively build new lenses meant to create dynamic readings and writings. As a student, you'll engage in daily writing activities, lesson-based writing prompts, & group discussions led by a team of enthusiastic advisors. Together, we will discuss identity & craft, and study a variety of writers, visual artists, and other creators. We favor playfulness over perfection, and we’ll encourage you to experiment with form and style: we want you to find what makes you electric.
Throughout the workshop, you'll have the opportunity to peruse the Poets House’s 70,000 volumes of poetry, have lunch at the edge of the Hudson River, and work with an intimate group of writers committed to their craft. You'll write every day & you will give and receive thoughtful feedback every day. The workshop will close out with a reading at Poets House, open to the public, with celebratory cake — and you will have the opportunity to read from the body of work you'll have created during the workshop.
The workshop will also feature Guest Seminars which include a lecture based off a guided syllabus written and curated by the speaker, a group-wide discussion, and a Q&A. Guest Seminars for our NYC Workshops have included Angel Nafis, Sam Sax, Safia Elhillo, Hanif Abdurraqib, Airea D. Matthews, Shira Erlichman, and Chen Chen.
Our workshops run from 10:30AM-5:30PM each day -- we know that this means daytime-working writers will find it difficult to join this year, so we hope & plan to offer evening workshops soon. Tuition is $400; we have a limited financial aid fund for those with need. There is no application fee. There is no age minimum or maximum, and no experience is necessary. What are you waiting for?
Join us & catalyze your self-revolution.
