The Masters Class: A Juried Fiction Workshop with Tom Andes
We remain inspired by the work and dedication we see in our classes. It’s clear that many students are intent on producing publishable-quality pieces, and in some cases, have already done so. To these ends, the Masters Class allows for experienced writers to meet among peers with the goal of advancing one’s craft towards its highest levels. The workshop will focus on creating character-driven narratives, compelling voice and integrity of theme and arc.
Limited to just eight participants, the Masters Class aims to foster a close-knit dynamic and individualized attention. Writers can expect longer submission lengths and insights into publication. Both short story writers and novelists are encouraged to apply.
