A friend was so intimidated by the novel she was working on that she refused to call it a novel—and called it The Long Thing instead. Any long form project is challenging, whether it's a novel, memoir, or nonfiction book. This master class is designed to provide a structure to keep your Long Thing on track, give you feedback, and make you part of a small community of writers who believe in each other. It doesn't matter where you are in the process. Writers in the group will set goals for the class and, at the end of the class, will meet individually with the instructor, who will help them assess where they are and what their next steps should be.

Barbara Shoup is the author of eight novels and three books on the creative process. She served as IWC's Executive Director for ten years and is currently the Center's Writer-in-Residence. She has taught writing for more than forty years.
