This workshop provides the forum for aspiring novelists to discuss their works in progress and receive reader reactions, all while generating or revising additional pages. During the monthly three-hour workshops, writers will briefly share new work, raise questions about craft or process, and receive support from other novelists in the trenches. In-class feedback will largely take the form of questions surrounding the novel’s world and novelist’s vision in order to respect the ongoing drafting process. The instructor will also provide one written critique for each writer throughout the duration of the workshop.

This is an advanced workshop limited to eight students. To apply, writers must submit a writing sample of 5-10 pages (double-spaced, 12-point font). Please also describe your workshop experience and where you are in the novel drafting process. Deadline to apply is December 12. Writers selected for the class will be notified by December 19.
