*This class meets every other week. Please see the calendar for specific dates.

This workshop class, crafted particularly with novelists’ needs in mind, will enable writers to share larger novel portions for workshop (several chapters at a time) and ultimately get feedback for more their book-length work in one class. The class will meet every other week for five 3-hour class sessions, and participants will have a one-hour individual consultation with the instructor. While this class will have fewer in-class meetings, the total instructional time is equivalent to an eight-week course. Take advantage of this opportunity to get in-depth feedback from other novelists for a large portion of your book. The class will be capped at six students.

To enroll in the class, students must submit a writing sample of at least 750 words to the instructor. Email sample to programs@writerhouse.org.
