Novel Workshop

Instructor: Joshilyn Jackson


Whether you are starting fresh, revising a completed MS, or lost in the wilds of a work-in-progress, the goal of this class is to move you closer to a completed novel while fostering community among local writers. 25% of our time will be formatted as a lecture/discussion focusing on a specific element of craft or navigating the publishing industry. The rest of the class time will function as a workshop where you will receive both my feedback and the feedback of your peers in a supportive, constructive, and goal oriented environment.

 Class Limit is 12.
