For LGBTQ+ writers, a lack of queer-focused guidance, support, and community in writing workshops can stifle or even stall progress for novels. Taking place over nine months, the Novel Immersive for LGBTQ+ Writers is a program uniquely designed to fill this void and help queer writers complete or make significant progress towards completing a draft of their novel in a supportive community.
Ready to get your novel out into the world? If so, GrubStreet’s competitive and affordable MFA-level course is for you. Over 12 months, writers will revise their novels, study the novel form, and gain a thoughtful introduction to the publishing world.

The January 2023 edition of "Writing Life Essentials" is a monthly hand-curated list of contests, grants, scholarships, submission calls, and awards. We try to prioritize opportunities that are at least one of the following: local, free to apply, and/or committed to celebrating and supporting writers from historically marginalized communities. We do the research, so you have more time for what matters: the writing. Or, brainstorming New Year’s resolutions. That’s important, too.
