Tonight, tonight!

We made it! Let’s all give each other a big round of applause for making it to the most important day of the week, Friday. So, how will you be spending your reward for making it through the week in one piece? Worry not, it just so happens NYWC is throwing its Spring Fling! Here’s five reasons why the Spring Fling is the place you want to be.


Let’s be honest, it’s Friday who doesn’t need to unwind a little? Come kick back with the NYWC team and it’s supporters and have a drink.  Sponsored by Iceberg Vodka and LiBella Pinot Grigio, the specialty cocktails will help you start your weekend right.
Somewhere in between strong cocktails and good company, NYWC will give guests a glance at their new promotional video. Featuring some of our amazing workshop leaders and participants, it’s an inside look you don’t want to miss. For an exclusive first viewing be sure to join us tonight.


What’s a benefit without a silent auction? This year NYWC has out done themselves with a chance to win a membership to the writing workshop of your dreams or a private touring of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The arts not your thing? No worries, other fantastic items up for auction include Yankees v. White Sox tickets, a Hypnosis package, and Private Dinner for 2 by Chef Margaret Chen plus Cookbooks. Sound good? Come on down!

You’ll feel good Saturday morning. After a night on the town it’s common to feel run down the next morning. But knowing you helped make a difference the night before will keep a little pep in your step all weekend long. NYWC provides free creative writing workshops throughout New York City for people from groups that have been historically deprived of voice in our society. We publish our workshop participants’ writing and organize public readings of their work. Every dollar raised at tonight’s Spring Fling will go straight to helping us ensure that we can give a voice and a safe space to those who need it most.

Last, but certainly not least, it’s finally spring! Come out, bring a friend and make some really cool new ones.  You’ve been cooped up all winter, come celebrate arrival of spring with us. You can purchase tickets here.
