Videos, Homework and Writing Your Novella for Kris

The workshop will last 9 weeks with multiple new videos dropping every week including the weekly videos for homework assignments and the homework response videos.

After the 9 weeks, everyone will have 4 weeks write their novella (15K-35K words) for Kris to read. Students will be given a deadline date and if that deadline is met then Kris will read and respond to your novella.

Once the workshop is completed, access to all the videos in the workshop will remain open to go back, watch and review at your leisure. 

About the ART OF THE NOVELLA Workshop Series

To write a great novella in a genre means meeting the story expectations and structure unique to that specific genre. From pacing, to setting, character arcs, and many other quirks. Writing a novella in any genre is an art form.

The Art of the Novella workshop series not only includes genre specific teaching in each workshop, you also will write your own novella in that genre that you will submit to award-winning editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch to be personally and privately read, commented on and submitted back to you.

There are four genres available in the workshop series: Fantasy, Romance, Mystery and Science Fiction. These workshops are available for purchase individually or grouped together for a discount.

Learn the art of novella writing from writing masters and internationally bestselling authors Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith.
