Writing the Unreal: The Whole Novel Workshop in Fantasy & Speculative Fiction May 2019
May 12 - 19, 2019
Designed for anyone with a complete or near-complete draft of a middle grade or young adult novel in fantasy or speculative fiction.
Do you write children’s or YA fantasy? Alternate history? Science fiction? Magical realism? Paranormal romance? Fairy tale retellings? Horror? Bring it to The Whole Novel Workshop in Fantasy & Speculative Fiction!
This workshop offers writers the rare opportunity to have the entire draft of a novel read and critiqued prior to the workshop. You’ll get a detailed editorial letter from your faculty mentor along with a marked-up manuscript. We read your manuscripts very carefully and respond thoroughly in order to help you make your novel what it wants to be.
Please note that there is an application process for this workshop.
You must register to apply for this workshop. Once you register, you will receive a response with instructions on how to apply—either just for the workshop or to apply for the workshop if requesting financial aid.
For your application, you will need to submit:
- A writing sample: 10-15 pages from the manuscript you wish to workshop
- A synopsis
- Word count
- The current status of your manuscript
The application deadline is February 1, 2019. Decisions will be made soon after the application deadline, after which you will be expected to turn in your full manuscript.
