Focusing on developing projects and receiving feedback from the instructor and classmates, this course helps students sharpen their skills and work toward completion of publishable work. Writers often repeat Novel II to continue their projects.
Begin or work toward completion of a novel
Lectures that expand on basics of fiction craft and the novel form
Present work for in-depth critique (three times)
Gotham actually has two separate programs for Novel II. They complement each other, and many students take both programs, but it makes no difference which one is taken first. If you take one program, then enroll again for Novel II, Gotham will make sure you are placed in the other program.
Prerequisite: Fiction I or the equivalent. Beginners who wish to write novels should take Fiction I before Novel II.
