Catapult Extra

Launched This Week: December 12th-16th

A roundup of stories from our week together at Catapult.



I’m thrilled to announce that in partnership with Electric Literature, we’re offering a limited number of full scholarships to workshops and master classes. This fall we also held our first online classes, and expect that branch of our program to grow exponentially in the coming months. Finally, we’ve joined forces with Literary Hub to host a new writer’s conference this summer. The conference, called Catapult NYC, will be a three-day deep dive into the craft and commerce of literary writing, held the weekend of June 23rd at the NYU Lillian Vernon Creative Writers House. The legendary Paul Auster (!!!) is our keynote speaker. Email Colin Drohan ( to get on the info list.

Thank you to all that have generously shared their words and inspired us since our first workshop. We’re looking forward to expanding our community in the months and years to come, and to reading your work and celebrating your successes.
