You are applying for acceptance to the 2022 cohort of the Novel Writing Master Class with Michelle Richmond. This six-month novel writing program begins the first week of January, 2022.

The application is free. If you are accepted into the program, you will be directed to the Novel Writing Master Class website for payment. See pricing details here.

Please submit a cover letter telling me why you want to take the course, plus a prose writing sample of 1,200-3,000 words. The sample may be an excerpt from your novel in progress, a short story or flash fiction, or a memoir excerpt. 

Please note: it is not necessary to have a portion of your novel written prior to the course. Many students begin from scratch during the first week of class. 

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
