NeuWrite was founded in 2009 at Columbia University by students and postdoctoral fellows in the Department of Neuroscience in collaboration with students in the non-fiction and poetry MFA programs. NeuWrite quickly became a noted forum for interdisciplinary work, attracting academics from institutions across New York City (including Rockefeller, Mt. Sinai, CUNY, SUNY and NYU), as well as professionals from media platforms such as The New Yorker, The New York Times, NPR, Scientific American Mind, and The Story Collider.
NeuWrite has since expanded to include other universities and cities, including NYU, Stanford, Boston, San Diego, Philadelphia, London, and Portland, Oregon. If you're interested in joining or forming a group in your area, please contact us.
