For some students, there is a strong desire to continue with the structure and collegiality that Writing a Novel provides, while also beginning to write independently. Stay the Course – Finish and Submit Your Novel is designed to keep you productive and accountable in the months after the course, to help you to work through any issues you might face on the way to completing your full manuscript draft, and to accompany you over the finish line.
Now having completed Writing a Novel, you will be attend monthly online ‘check-in’ sessions with acclaimed novelist and Writing a Novel director Carrie Tiffany. You will also join an open online forum for ongoing communication and support, featuring monthly exercises and prompts from Carrie. You can work at your own pace through the monthly lessons and exercises.
The program will culminate in a weekend festival of conversations with guest writers about the process of finishing a manuscript, and a series of sessions with a leading literary agent, who’ll provide invaluable tips and tricks to help your manuscript stand out when it comes time to finally hit submit.
Stay the Course is an exclusive online program designed for graduates of Writing a Novel to help students keep up momentum, maintain a sense of community and maximise their writing time. This is a chance to stay on track with your word count and finish your manuscript, ahead of submitting to an agent or publisher.
