This popular boot camp for aspiring novelists will help you complete the first draft of a novel in just eight weeks. With the guidance of your instructor and the support of your classmates, you will commit to an aggressive writing schedule and learn numerous tricks of the craft, from creating a productive working environment to getting to the heart of your story’s conflict.

You do not need permission to register, however you should have some prior experience in writing fiction, as well as a specific project to which you will devote these eight weeks. Participants will present their work to the class for discussion four times. Limited to 12 students.

Emily Chenoweth is the author of the novel Hello Goodbye (Random House), which was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award and was named one of the top ten Northwest books of 2009 by The Oregonian.

A former fiction editor at Publishers Weekly, Emily has also written for People, Self, Tin House, Plazm and Bookforum.
