Write Your (****) Novel:
A (***)ing Intensive.

8-10 writers.
10 weeks.
5 published novels to study.
High. Expectations.

(Not a revision workshop. We’ll have one of those. This is about getting (***)ing words on the (****)ing page).

Dates: 10 Tuesdays starting January 19th, 6:30-9:00 pm.
Cost: $400 + Books.


WHAT: Write Your (****)ing Novel is a novel writing bootcamp. Over 10 weeks, we will read 5 novels (a tentative list of authors includes: Toni Morrison, Jesmyn Ward, Justin Torres, Marlon James, Anne Carson) commit to writing 10 pages per week, write in-class with short (5) medium (10) long (30 minutes) and super (1 hour) writing sessions, study aspects of novels including structure, point of view, characterization, language, pattern shifting, architecture, image, time, scene, summary, dialogue AND MORE.

Each class will contain over one hour of writing and a craft discussion. The rest of class time will be devoted alternately between close readings of novels and exploratory feedback sessions. Between classes, we will keep one another accountable with side groups and read each others’ work, novels, and craft essays. We will write A LOT in class. This isn’t a revision/ publishing class (we’ll have one of those later in the year). The intention for this workshop is to get the writing done AND/OR develop enough of the world of the novel to begin to apply to residencies. Come with an idea for a novel (or none, or a novel where you got stuck halfway), leave with a world of your own creation.

WHERE: The Escapery West, 29th street and Mission, San Francisco.

WHEN: 10 Tuesdays starting January 19th, 2015.

WHO: If you read this far, you. You belong. And other writers willing to take the brave step of starting a novel.

COST: $400. As always, discounts and trades available.
