Sculpting the Novel: A Revision Workshop

Intermediate | You’ve drafted a novel from beginning to end. You see its potential, you want to keep living in its world, and maybe, even, you’d like to make it publishable. Now what? In this class, people will read each other’s fully drafted novels and help each other begin or complete a second (or later) draft. Authors such as John Gardner and Jane Smiley and books on structure such as Sandra Scofield’s The Scene Book may be consulted for their wisdom.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
