Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen

About the Writers’ Workshop at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen

The Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in New York City is known nationally and internationally for its ambitious ministry to the hungry. Since 1982 it has served on average 1,000 meals a day to those in need and continues to do so with the help of countless dedicated volunteers and friends. Less well known is its Writers’ Workshop, founded in 1993 by New Yorker journalist  and novelist Ian Frazier, to open a creative forum for soup kitchen guests. Through the Workshop, our guests are encouraged to create, think and reflect, while showcasing their considerable literary talents through prose, poetry and memoirs. Along with stories about our guests and volunteers, this blog showcases the impressive body of work – alternately touching, funny, and heartbreaking – from our Writers’ Workshop contributors both past and present. Some of these selections come from our annual published anthologies, and some from the present day, with material and news from our current Workshop which takes place each Fall and Spring. We invite you to read, enjoy and share.
