Advanced Fiction Course – journey to publication

Advanced Fiction Course – journey to publication

We still have places on our Advanced Fiction Course starting in a month’s time. This a rare line-up of NZ’s leading editors and some highly successful new authors...

This is a one-off new course offered to graduates of our Thirty Week Fiction courses, those with a Masters of Creative Writing, or those who have published a book of fiction.

It will run from 2nd August to 26th October 2016. It will feature workshops on manuscript development by some of NZ’s leading fiction editors, plus sessions by successfully published writers who are graduates of our Thirty Week Fiction Courses and its predecessor. In addition, student work will be discussed on a weekly rotational basis, using feedback from the group in sessions chaired by Hub director John Cranna. We will also be covering scholarships, mentoring and bursaries available to start out writers.

Start Date: Tuesday August 2nd 2016, 6-9pm
Course Length: 12 weeks, weekly on Tuesday nights
