8-Week: Advanced Novel Workshop

Advanced Novel Workshop

 A novel is a huge undertaking, and this class is intended to help you break down the process into manageable units, gain perspective on your novel as a whole, and sharpen the aspects of your novel that set it apart and make it yours. During the eight-week session, we’ll discuss readings, complete various exercises designed to free your inner Faulkner (or insert other famous writer here), and we’ll workshop two sections of your novel. This class is intended for advanced novelists who have completed a sizeable portion of their manuscripts.

Students are encouraged to take Intermediate Novel several times before taking this class. Admission by permission of the instructor. To gain permission, please send a short writing sample (3-5 pages) and your previous workshop experience by email to [email protected].


This class is currently full, but please check out an alternative workshop like our 8-Week: Advanced Short Story Workshop with Courtney Morgan, 8-Week: Work in Progress Workshop with Rebecca Berg, or our 8-Week: Speculative Workshop with Courtney Morgan. If a space should open up for you in this class, we'd be happy to transfer your registration.
