Two-Weekend Intensive: Writing the Upmarket Novel (Denver)

$345.00 Members
$405.00 Non-members

What is an upmarket novel? It’s a rigorous combination of character-driven and plot-driven novels. Often, we learn one or the other in workshops. To combine the two takes a sort of intelligence and grace that can bring out the best in a novel-in-progress. It seems almost taboo to mention this, but, yes, upmarket novels are designed to sell. Especially in 2022. As a teacher, my approach has always been not to focus on the product, but rather on the process of writing. In this intensive, we’ll focus on both. During the first week, I’ll offer information for discussion and study. This will include some short readings. The second weekend, we’ll workshop some of our pages focusing on the specific elements of the upmarket novel. Open to all writers with novels currently in progress.
