Faber Academy: Writing a Novel: The First 15,000 (Online)
Wed 3 Jun 2020 to Wed 16 Dec 2020
We're thrilled that Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, award-winning author of Helpless Like You and Starling Days, will be the tutor on the next iteration of our online course Writing a Novel: The First 15,000 starting on 3 June 2020. Apply by Sunday 24 May.

The eight-month course is perfect for committed writers who want to get going on their novel with the help of a supportive group of fellow novelists from around the world. 

Start and stress-test your novel on this demanding eight-month course for committed writers. If you’re thinking about a creative writing MA, consider this practical online alternative.

The course consists of thirteen sessions, which you work through progressively in our online classroom with a small group of peers, your tutor and a moderator. There’s no need to log on at a certain time each week – as long as you complete the set assignments and peer feedback by the end of each fortnightly session you can work at any time of the day or night that suits you.

You’ll need to commit to at least 5–7 hours’ study each week in order to complete the practical tasks and progress your novel, and to read and feedback on your peers’ novels as they develop.

The application deadline for this iteration of the course is midnight on Sunday 24 May 2020.

Dates: 3 June - 16 December 2020  
Location: Online
Cost: £1,400
