What we're about

Writers With Attitude, also known as W.W.A (yes like N.W.A) is a growing collective of writers from New York. Twice a month, every other Saturday from 1-3pm we meet in Harlem and discuss our current work and partake in writing exercises to get our juices flowing. We're currently looking for more consistent members that are 18+ years old that enjoy writing fiction, creative nonfiction or poetry as a hobby or would like to pursue it professionally. And of course, the program is FREE! No catch at all. Just make sure you RSVP via email before each session, otherwise you won't be able to attend.

Come with an open mind & heart to become a better writer. Let’s all learn from each other!
