ABOUT YEARLONG CLASSES AT HUGO HOUSE
In weekly meetings over the course of the 2014-2015 academic year, class will provide advanced and dedicated writers with an intensive path toward finishing a publishable draft of a book. Whether you are early in the writing process or already have a rough draft, this yearlong course will help you set and active clear goals, as well as write and revise with intention. The first third of the class will focus on developing proficiency with the writing tools (craft elements) that you will need to use, and the remaining two thirds of the class will be comprised of workshops and writing toward personally devised deadlines. At the end of the year, there will be a two-day, weekend-long intensive on the book business and finding a market for your book, and Hugo House will host a culminating celebration and reading. Previous workshop experience required.
