Description of Class
One night. One author. One focused study of the craft.
We’re pleased to welcome award-winning author R.O. Kwon to the studio for this single-session master class. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to study with a master for an evening of close reading and in-depth discussion.
Outside the MFA provides a crash course in how to find time, money, and space to write before, after, and without an MFA.
Such considerations include:
- How to track down fellowships and residencies, and what are the best practices for applying?
- How useful are writing conferences?
- How to carve out writing time?
- What’s an essential part of any magazine pitch?
Please come to class with ideas about short pieces you hope to pitch to publications. Students will walk away with a draft of a fellowship/residency statement of purpose, as well as a honed pitch draft.
Please note: Kwon’s novel will be available for purchase during this session, courtesy of The Book Cellar.Top
