AWP Panel: "The Book Problem: Innovative Programs for Writers of Long Projects"

  • AWP Conference 1301 2nd Ave S Minneapolis, MN, 55403 United States (map)

Panel at the AWP Conference 2015. Description:

R176. Typically, writers of book-length projects receive workshop feedback on chapters from instructors and peers, a process that works for some, but traps others in a cycle of endlessly revising small sections, never getting the full draft. Two innovative programs, Grub Street’s Novel Incubator and Lighthouse Writers Workshop's Book Project, have developed ways of supporting authors in getting their full works drafted and refined. Lessons learned and processes to be replicated will be forthcoming.(Andrea Dupree,  Chris Castellani,  Erika Krouse,  Michelle Hoover,  William Haywood Henderson)
