Getting To Know Your Novel Online Course (Feb-Apr) Plus Onsite Retreat (May 27-31) 2020

May 27 - 31, 2020


Give your novel the special attention it deserves with this long-form workshop: an activity-based web series paired with a guided writing retreat.

We’d like to invite you to spend the first three months of 2020 workshopping your novel (either complete or in-progress) in this unique program led by author and writing teacher Sarah Aronson with support from several teaching assistants. The workshop has 3 parts:

Part 1: Weekly Sessions in a Web Classroom
January 3-February 21
You’ll participate in online discussions, read lectures, watch videos and complete writing exercises.

Part 2: Writing and Revising On Your Own
You’ll apply all you learned in Part 1 to your novel–finishing up your draft, or your revision, with faculty support as needed.

Part 3: In-person Workshop at our Retreat Center
May 27-31
You’ll bring your novel to our Retreat Center, where the team will mentor you through your next round of revisions.
