2015: YOUR NOVEL YEAR

Dear Prospective Students,

I’m excited to announce enhancements to the Your Novel Year program! The program will be extended from 12 to 18 months. The first 12 months will be devoted to writing a draft, and the final 6 months will be for polishing and fine-tuning, as well as exploring publishing options. The extra time will allow for additional one-on-one mentorship with award-winning authors, and more time in-between courses for integration and synthesis of material (more writing time).

The upshot is that the program will now include:

  • Introductory Writing Intensive Courses
  • Three workshops
  • Three opportunities for one-on-one mentorship
  • Classes in revision and publishing
  • Two opportunities to attend the Desert Nights, Rising Stars Conference, with opportunities to build connections with agents, editors, and publishers.

If you have further questions about the program, I am happy to answer them. If you’re serious about writing a manuscript, I hope you’ll apply to the program!
Sincerely,

Bill Konigsberg
