The GCLS Writing Academy is excited to announce we will be interviewing author Chris Convissor next week in this space. This award-winning author graduated from the Writing Academy in 2015. We’re looking forward to having a cup of coffee and a chat with her this time next week!
The GCLS Writing Academy is a yearlong intensive program for new or relatively new writers who have written at least part of a novel. In this course, students will learn the critical components of quality writing. The Writing Academy goes beyond craft of writing and takes students through all aspects of writing and publishing a novel.
Over the course of the year, students attend weekly classes covering craft of writing, revision, the publication process, and how to handle mentor feedback.
Classes take place online on Saturdays at noon ET. It is highly recommended you attend each live class, as the interaction with other students and the professor feedback is an important part of this program.
The program concludes with a one-on-one mentoring experience with some of the most established and awarded authors in lesbian fiction.
The Writing Academy provides an environment that supports the development of a community of learners through regular online interactions, shared assignments, and teamwork. The program is comprised of 12 students and 3 full time faculty plus honorary guest instructors.
