Novella Bootcamp with Laurie Penny
January 3 through February 21
Sundays from 5:30-7:30pm Pacific time
Some scholarships available, with preference to BIPOC and marginalized students
Want to make your New Year’s resolutions come to life? We’re presenting an eight-week novella workshop with Laurie Penny in early 2021.
Together, class members will structure, outline, trouble-shoot, and most importantly, complete a 17,000-40,000 word novella. Using storytelling techniques from screenwriting, the aim is for each student to come away with a finished first draft. This class is for intermediate and advanced writers. Come prepared to work hard and support each other!
Laurie Penny is an award-winning author, journalist, and screenwriter from London, now living in Los Angeles. As a screenwriter, Laurie has worked on The Haunting of Bly Manor (Netflix), The Nevers (HBO), and Carnival Row (Amazon). They are a graduate of the Clarion West class of 2015.

Applicants should submit the following by December 10:
- A brief outline (200-500 words) that explains your idea, describes the main characters, and where you see the story going. (This can change, but Laurie would like a sense of what your story is about!)
- A short personal statement (500 words or fewer) about your workshop or publishing experience. Workshop experience and publications are not required, but we do want to know more about you!
- Scholarship applicants should state in the body of their email that they are applying for a scholarship and include information in their personal statement about their interest and financial need (please maintain a limit of 800 words or fewer). We prioritize seats for BIPOC and other marginalized students, and for first-time scholarship recipients.
