The next Revising Fiction online workshop has been scheduled to begin on Feb. 24, 2021, and is now open for registration. This workshop is my Masterclass. It’s intended for writers with a complete draft of a novel, memoir, or a body of short stories who want help bringing their work to the next level. Revising Fiction is open to as-yet unpublished writers as well as published writers who want to hone their craft.
To apply, you need:
––The goods: a completed draft of a novel of body of short stories
—Commitment. Revising Fiction is an in intensive, immersive writing experience. You should figure on investing at least 10 hours a week.
–– A synopsis of up to 500 words with your application, plus the first five or six pages of your novel. Drop me a line and I’ll get back to you with instructions on sending this material. (If you need a little time to put together the synopsis, no problem, just let me know.)
—An open mind. Otherwise, what’s the point?
The workshop consists of seven 2-week sessions plus a week of orientation. Each session includes a lecture, discussions, a checklist, and critiquing of excerpts of each writer’s WIP (more details here.) Tuition is $795 with a registration fee of $100. I offer a money-back guarantee: If you start the course and discover within the first two weeks that it’s not right for you, I will refund your tuition.
About me: I’ve worked for four decades in all aspects of the publishing business, as a writer, an editor for a top NYC publisher, and a longtime literary agent. I’ve taught fiction writing at Hofstra University and SUNY Farmingdale before opening my own online school of writing. More here.
I keep these classes very small, and a number of spots were filled by a waiting list, but I have two openings. If the timing is right for you, let’s talk.
