Milo will answer any questions you have about the Novel Immersive, including the workload, the application process, what the program does and doesn’t entail, the schedule, the philosophy behind our approach, and anything else you have on your mind!

9 Months on Tuesdays from 6:00pm-9:00pm EST, starting June 7th, 2022 via Zoom

For LGBTQ+ writers, a lack of queer-focused guidance, support, and community in writing workshops can stifle or even stall progress for novels. Taking place over nine months, the Novel Immersive for LGBTQ+ Writers is a program uniquely designed to fill this void and help queer writers complete or make significant progress towards completing a draft of their novel in a supportive community. LGBTQ+ writers will leave this immersive with a finished and/or more polished draft, a trajectory for getting published (including support for applying to higher-level GrubStreet programs, such as the Novel Incubator), and a supportive queer writing community that they can hold onto long after the program is over.

Please Note: This program involves an application process. The deadline to apply is March 28th, 2022, by 11:59pm EST. All applicants will be notified in early May 2022.

The cost of the program is $2,495, payable in full before the start of class. Admitted students will be given a specific payment deadline. Fellowships of 25% – 75% tuition are available and based on a combination of merit and financial need. Applicants can apply for a GrubStreet Fellowship at the end of their application to the program.
