It’s summer! You can accomplish a lot or you can accomplish just a little. BUT, if it is on your bucket list to start a first draft of a novel guided by a seasoned veteran of the writing world, why would you say no?  This class is designed to help writers start a novel in any genre in a condensed and intense format. It’s a novel staycation that packs a punch. You’ll study every aspect of novel writing and apply what you are learning.

Class includes one-to-one consultations with instructor and multiple workshopping opportunities. Initial workshop will be of between 5K-15K words and a second workshop will be between 15K-25K, as well as outlines and sketches submitted for feedback from peers and the instructor. Participants must have started a novel, even if it is only in outline form.

Note: This class will meet for TEN Wednesdays on the following dates: 6/5, 6/12, 6/19, 6/26, 7/10, 7/17, 7/24, 7/31, 8/7, and 8/14.

Randall Klein worked in publishing for a decade, starting at the literary agency Trident Media Group, then as an editor, first within the Random House Publishing Group, then for Diversion Books, where he acquired and edited over one hundred books across all genres. He is also the author of the novel Little Disasters, published in May of 2018 by Viking Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
