Do you struggle to keep your stories under 6000 words? Have you ever received feedback comments in short story workshops like, “I want more!” or “This feels like the start of something bigger”? Have you reached the point at which you feel ready to immerse yourself in a piece of writing, rather than dole your stories out in bite-sized chunks, but you’re not quite sure how to venture into a longer form? Writing a novel is akin to taking a leisurely walk in a deep woods you're not sure you know your way out of, but a workshop like this can help draft a makeshift map.

We will focus exclusively on writing the novel, studying the particular challenges and expectations that arise when writing long-form fiction and discussing excerpts of published novels to identify their craft strategies. We’ll talk about building structure and juggling subplots. We’ll look at ways to avoid the dreaded “sagging middle.” We'll work on breaking novels down into manageable "treatments." In addition, writers will have the opportunity to see their own pages and outlines critiqued, depending on where they are in the process. Writers with no completed novels are welcome, as are writers of all genres.
