MFA Course Descriptions

IMF 52207
Focused Fiction Workshop:
Novel Chapter Workshop

Instructor: Kali VanBaale

Class Type: Workshop

Course Description: 

This online workshop will focus exclusively on novel chapters of a novel-in-progress. We will focus on story progression between chapters and address all craft elements of novel writing.

Each student will submit up to 12 pages of novel chapters (at any point in the novel) in two workshop sessions to receive rigorous feedback from peers and the instructor, and students will read and respond to 2-4 peer submissions per week. 

There will also be writing and reading assignments between workshop sessions, and recommended readings each week.

This workshop can be demanding, but the goal is for each student to finish the course with several polished chapters of a novel-in-progress.

All genres welcome.
