The Students

Who Should Apply

The main qualification for the Novel Generator is not polished prose or even an in-depth understanding of what your book is about. What we’re really looking for is passion and commitment.

The ideal Novel Generator student feels an urgency in getting her novel written; she should be dedicated to completing the course, and her novel draft, in nine months. Because of this, we are looking for students who have an established writing practice or can build and commit to one during the nine months.

Students should expect to spend 4-6 hours a week reading other students’ work and working on their own projects. This course is geared for students at all levels, from first-time novelists to students who have completed the Novel Incubator or an MFA program but who wish to write a draft of a new novel in a structured, supportive environment.

The only requirement is having taken at least one Novel in Progress or Fiction I class at GrubStreet, or the equivalent.
