Course description

This course is designed for those writers who wish to spend a sustained period of time working on a single project of any length. Writers must have a formed idea to bring to the course which indicates its proposed overall structure and content. Part of the project might be already written but this is not required. Over the course, writers will submit up to 2000 word sections for discussion at a weekly workshop with other writers. Projects can be in any genre or medium including novels, short stories, poetry, sci-fi, horror, crime, relationships, memoir, comedy, plays, films, TV shows, nonfiction, historical fiction, fantasy and radio plays amongst others. Alumni of other MKCW courses very welcome as well as writers of some experience. Includes some discussion of the writing craft, weekly workshop and post-course editorial response to a submission sample of 7,500 words, synopsis and formal query letter to publishers/agents/production companies.
