8 Week: Work In Progress Workshop--Novel or Memoir


No critiquing. No taking pages home and writing comments. No being critiqued or worrying about perfecting pages before you've got the bigger picture.

This Work-in-Progress Workshop is for novelists and memoirists who are some ways into their projects and want to use their writing time to focus on finishing or reworking a draft. Discussions and mini-lectures will offer hammers and wrenches--the elements of craft as tools, not rules. You'll set personal writing goals: five pages a week? Ten? Or maybe a chapter a week? Or two scenes? As you generate material, you'll have a chance to bring in excerpts for quick "soundchecks."
Craft topics will be tailored to the challenges and opportunities that you're encountering in your work. So please plan to send the instructor twenty pages before the start of the first session--not for critique, but so she can be familiar with your project. Instructor will email the class with further details prior to the start date.
