Cambridge Writers’ Workshop

The Cambridge Writers’ Workshop (CWW) began as a creative writing community in Cambridge, MA. Formed by graduate students at Harvard University in 2008, the workshop was meant as a forum for fostering communities of dedicated writers and encouraging creative expression in the literary arts. The CWW was all-inclusive and was open to all emerging and established writers in the Cambridge and Boston area. Since 2008, the CWW has been run by directors Rita Banerjee and Diana Norma Szokolyai. Current Executive Board members include Gregory Crosby, Jonah Kruvant, Elissa Lewis, Viktor Pachas, Jessica Reidy, Kathleen Spivack, our managing interns Alex Carrigan and Emily Smith, and our interns Anna-Celestrya Carr, Erynn Porter, Anne Malin Ringwalt, and Shannon O. Sawyer. In 2011, the workshop expanded to include on-line creative writing courses and writing retreats. We have participated in the Mass Poetry Festival, Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn Lit Crawl, Manhattan Lit Crawl, and the annual AWP Conference. All writers from novices to professionals, who are looking for a serious writing community, are welcome to join the Cambridge Writers’ Workshop.
