Let this be the summer you make headway on that novel, with individual instruction from award-winning novelist Heather Newton. The first week of May, you’ll have an hour-long interview (choose between in-person and Zoom) in which Heather will ask you interview questions designed to get you thinking about all aspects of your novel. You’ll then have hard deadlines to turn in up to 20 pages for written feedback, with your beginning pages due June 1, a climax chapter due July 1, and your ending pages due August 1 (no excuses). Your summer coaching will end with a half-hour session (on Zoom) the first week of August to help you create a roadmap to finish your novel. This class will be most helpful to writers who have not yet completed a first draft. Limited to six students.
