The Whole Novel Workshop May 2019
May 5 - 11, 2019
Revise and polish your novel in preparation for submission.
The Whole Novel Workshop is specifically designed for writers of middle grade and young adult novels. This unique program offers the one-on-one attention found in degree programs without additional academic requirements, lengthy time commitments, or prohibitive financial investments. Our aim is to focus on a specific work-in-progress, moving a novel to the next level in preparation for submission to agents or publishers. Focused attention in an intimate setting makes this mentorship program one that guarantees significant progress.
The Whole Novel Workshop offers writers the rare opportunity to have the entire draft of a novel read and critiqued prior to the workshop, followed by a week of intense, one-on-one mentoring.
