Class Description

This class is designed for students who have taken Master Novel in Progress or something similar and have completed a first draft (or second or eighth!) that they want to troubleshoot. The workshop will focus on what is working in your novel and what can be improved. Students will take home 100 pages of a manuscript from one of their fellow students every week (submissions may be from any part in the manuscript), a chapter-by-chapter outline of the novel in progress (included in the 100 pages), and a cover letter from the author stating what they think needs work and what shouldn't be commented on. Writers will receive written feedback on their manuscripts—at least a page of commentary from their fellow writers and a longer one from the instructor—as well as a three-hour workshop designed for that writer's needs. This course is ideal for writers wanting to enter the Novel Incubator with a better idea of how best to strengthen their work and polish it for publication. GrubStreet writers who have graduated from Jenna's workshop with novels that have then been published include Amin Ahmad, Iris Gomez, Henriette Power, E.B. Moore, and Anna Solomon, among others. Class size is limited to 9 students.

The deadline for this class has passed. Applicants will hear back the week of December 15th.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class.
