Take Your Novel to the Next Level: The Generator, the Incubator, and the Immersive

Need an environment where you can work on your novel with other writers who are in the same boat? Try one of our months-long novel intensives!


Novel Generator

A nine-month program designed to help students at all levels complete (or make substantial progress toward completing) a first draft of a novel in an environment that offers support, accountability and feedback appropriate to this early stage in the novel-writing process. Read about our submission requirements here.

The upcoming round of the Novel Generator, which begins in Jaunary 2023, will take place in-person in Boston. Writers local to Boston are encouraged to apply. A remote round of the Novel Generator will be offered in the Fall of 2023, and applications will open in June 2023.

Applications are due December 12th, 2022, by 11:59pm (EST). Click here to apply.


Novel Incubator

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 upcoming round of the Novel Incubator will take place in-person in Boston at GrubStreet's Center for Creative Writing in the Seaport. Occaisionally, classes may be held on Zoom if it becomes unsafe to hold in-person meetings due to COVID-19. You can see GrubStreet's latest in-person meeting status here.

The application deadline is February 13th, 2023, by 11:59pm (EST). Click here to apply.


Novel Immersive for LGBTQ+ Writers

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. 

Thinking of applying? GrubStreet is offering an informal online Q&A with instructor Milo Todd on February 22, 2023, to answer any questions you have about the Novel Immersive for LGBTQ+ Writers, including the workload, the application process, what the program does and doesn’t entail, the schedule, the philosophy behind our approach, and anything else on your mind! Register here.
