A novel is a world into which a reader disappears for hours or days at a time, navigating through time and space and human psychology. We live with the characters, be they a glamorous bootlegger living the high life, or a mixed-up teenager on hiatus from prep school, or a neurotic woman trying to lose weight and land a man.
 
Writing a novel is a long haul—a steep climb over hundreds of pages that must work as a unified and engrossing whole. Here you will learn the specialized techniques of novel writing and how to market your work.
 
If you’re up for the challenge, we’ll show you how to write a novel to remember.

Notes:

Fiction I encompasses short stories and novels. After Level I, students have a choice of Fiction II/III (focusing on short stories), or Novel II (focusing on novels).
 
If you are working on “genre” fiction, you may take either a Fiction/Novel course or one of our genre courses: Science Fiction & Fantasy, Romance, Mystery.
 
If you are working on a YA novel, you may take a Fiction/Novel or “genre” course, or you may take a Children’s Book course, where the full spectrum of children’s books will be covered.

Level II
Novel Writing | 10-week Workshop
 
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.
