Writing the Unreal: The Whole Novel Workshop in Fantasy & Speculative Fiction 2019

About us

Overview

Designed for anyone with a complete or near-complete draft of a middle grade or young adult novel in fantasy or speculative fiction.

Do you write children’s or YA fantasy? Alternate history? Science fiction? Magical realism? Paranormal romance? Fairy tale retellings? Horror? Bring it to The Whole Novel Workshop in Fantasy & Speculative Fiction!

This workshop offers writers the rare opportunity to have the entire draft of a novel read and critiqued prior to the workshop. You’ll get a detailed editorial letter from your faculty mentor along with a marked-up manuscript. We read your manuscripts very carefully and respond thoroughly in order to help you make your novel what it wants to be.

Please note that there is an application process for this workshop.

After you register and pay your $200 deposit, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the application you will need to fill out. You will need to submit:

  • A writing sample: 10-15 pages from the manuscript you wish to workshop
  • A synopsis
  • Word count
  • The current status of your manuscript

The application deadline is February 1, 2019. Decisions will be made soon after the application deadline, after which you will be expected to turn in your full manuscript.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To bring my friend and open her world to the gift of yoga. Denise
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
