Novel in Progress is an opportunity for writers to study the craft of creative writing, share and workshop portions of their novel manuscript, provide and receive constructive criticism, and work with a published author at an MFA-level of instruction as they work their way through the rewriting and revision process for their novel in progress. This nine-month intensive program will offer support and structure by helping students establish goals and writing habits while working to meet deadlines. Class discussions will focus on the art of revision. Because critical assessments can sometimes be counterproductive during the early drafting phase, this intermediate/advanced course is for fiction writers who have completed their novel draft or have made significant progress on their novel and are close to completing a full manuscript. This course will provide accountability, community and motivation during the revision process and will offer the structure, companionship, feedback and emotional support to help authors rewrite and revise their novel in one academic year.
Novels of all genres are welcome; previous workshop experience is required and students will be asked to submit a writing sample as a part of the application process.
