The Cambridge Writers’ Workshop (CWW) 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, Elissa Lewis, Viktor Pachas, Jessica Reidy, Kathleen Spivack, our manager Alex Carrigan, and our interns Miriam Francisco, Amanda Toronto, and Laura Whitmer. In 2011, the workshop expanded to include online 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, and we have partnered with the Château de Sacy, Château de Verderonne, Shakespeare and Company (Paris), Grolier Poetry Bookshop, Cambridge Center for Adult Education, Weehawken Writers & Artists Studio, Armchair/Shotgun, C&R Press, and Women’s National Book Association. All writers from novices to professionals, who are looking for a serious writing community, are welcome to join the Cambridge Writers’ Workshop.
