Course DescriptionThis dynamic and rigorous online/low-residency Master Class in Novel Writing is designed for those serious about revising and polishing their novels and getting published. The nine-month, 30-week online component allows for intensely individual instruction, peer critiques from a community of like-minded, talented writers, and a focus on process and results. The four-day residency in Los Angeles, two thirds of the way through the program, deepens the sense of community generated online and offers a lively, enriching mix of workshops, seminars, guest speakers, and a literary field trip. Your unique voice is cultivated so that it remains true to the singular vision of your novel, while ongoing one-on-one mentoring by a professional novelist provides distinctly personal support. Your novel excerpts are submitted to an established agent for review and consideration at the completion of the course. Participants may withdraw their application anytime before acceptance. A full novel manuscript submission and $50 nonrefundable application fee are required. Participants will not be charged the full course fee unless they are selected for the Master Class.
