Each student’s work will be the focus of 1) a half-hour interview/brainstorming session with instructor and peers; and 2) a critique of up to 20 pages of the novel. Class discussion and in-class writing exercises will address point of view, character, time, plot and structure and strategies for staying organized. Admission is based on instructor permission. To apply, email a writing sample of up to 15 pages to Once the instructor admits you, you may register through Eventbrite or by paper check.
