The Novel Workshop


July 10 - August 14 A Public Space, 323 Dean Street, Brooklyn, NY 11217

Novelists are often underserved by the typical workshop, which—while an excellent forum for considering the short story—does not always manage to accommodate discussions that pertain to larger-scale work: arc, plot, structure, shifts in voice or point of view, long-term character development.

This workshop is designed specifically for writers working on a novel and structured for writers at various stages of the writing process, from drafting, planning, outlining and plotting to revising, honing and refining. Each class will focus on one craft topic and will deal with texts at both the micro and macro levels.
