The novel-writing process is all too often long and lonesome. This workshop is designed to offer developing novelists encouragement, direction, and support. The eight-week course will comprise several individualized workshops on each participant's novel in progress as well as weekly topic-specific craft conversations. Whether you're in the process of drafting or have a completed manuscript, the workshops will be crafted to meet each writer where he or she is. Participants will be expected to submit work and read fellow students' submissions. Limit: eight students.
