Event Description:

5-Day Virtual Workshop
Monday – Friday, July 27 – 31 | 3:30 – 5 p.m. EST

This is a crash course on how to find time, money, and space to write after, before, and outside an MFA. How to find residencies and fellowships, and what are best practices for applying? How helpful are writing conferences? Where can you participate in literary communities? What’s a key part of a magazine pitch? Please come to class with ideas about short pieces you’d like to pitch to publications. You’ll leave with a draft of a fellowship/residency statement of purpose, as well as a pitch draft. Open to all genres.

R.O. Kwon’s nationally bestselling first novel, The Incendiaries, is published by Riverhead (U.S.) and Virago/Little Brown (U.K.), and it is being translated into six languages. Named a best book of the year by over forty publications, The Incendiaries was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle John Leonard Award for Best First Book, Los Angeles Times First Book Prize, and Northern California Independent Booksellers Association Fiction Prize. The book was also nominated for the Aspen Prize, Carnegie Medal, and the Northern California Book Award. Kwon’s next novel, as well as an essay collection, are forthcoming.
