Getting To Know Your Novel Online Course (Jan 3-Feb 21) Plus Onsite Retreat (Apr 7-11) 2019
April 7 - 11, 2019
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 2019 workshopping your novel (either complete or in-progress) in this unique program led by author and writing teacher Sarah Aronson and co-faculty Melanie Crowder, 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
You’ll bring your novel to our Retreat Center, where the team will mentor you through your next round of revisions.
See more details under the above “Agenda” tab.

The onsite retreat begins with dinner on Sunday, April 7, and ends with lunch on Thursday, April 11, with an optional tour of Highlights for Children and Boyds Mills Press.
