Write Your (****)ing Novel
oh no we’re back and we’re getting together to write a (****)ing novel!
5 published novels to study.
CAUTION: THIS IS A (****)ING INTENSIVE.
(Not a revision workshop. We’ll have one of those. This is about getting (***)ing words on the (****)ing page).
Dates: 10 Tuesdays starting January 22nd, 2019 Cost: $400 + Books.
WHAT: Write Your (****)ing Novel is a novel writing bootcamp now in its FOURTH YEAR and going to sell out, so get your spots early.
Over 10 weeks, we will read 5 books (past authors includes: Alison Bechdel, Jacqueline Woodson, Anne Carson, Justin Torres, Maggie Nelson, Miranda July) commit to writing 10 pages per week, write in-class with short (5) medium (10) long (30 minutes) and super (1 hour) writing sessions, study aspects of novels including structure, point of view, characterization, language, pattern shifting, architecture, image, time, scene, summary, dialogue AND MORE. Each class will contain over one hour of writing and a craft discussion.. Between classes, we will keep one another accountable with side groups and read each others’ work, novels, and craft essays. We will write A LOT in class. This isn’t a revision/ publishing class. The intention for this workshop is to get the writing done AND/OR develop enough of the world of the novel to begin to apply to residencies. Come with an idea for a novel (or none, or a novel where you got stuck halfway), leave with a world of your own creation.
WHERE: The Escapery East, near 19th Street Bart Oakland.
WHEN: 9 Tuesdays starting January 22nd, 2019!
WHO: If you read this far, you. You belong. And other writers willing to take the brave step of starting a novel.
COST: $400 + Books.
