Manuscript Seminar

The Archaeology of Fiction

with Ayşegül Savaş

Our manuscript seminars are intended for experienced writers of short stories or novels. Following a brief initial group meeting, individual manuscript consultations will be arranged within the scheduled framework. Our focus will be to excavate the core of each manuscript, paying attention to each writer’s unique voice and style, and to examine the various strata that form fictional worlds, from structural elements to the sense of enchantment and wonder. Depending on participant interest, we may also discuss outside readings and work on generative exercises. Participants must have work ready to submit six weeks prior to the beginning of the program. Enrollment is limited to six participants. Please note that admission to a Manuscript Seminar requires a 25-page sample drawn from the project you plan to work on during the program.
