Announcing Catapult’s Summer 2016 Classes!

Always dreamed of studying writing with the most exciting debut and established literary authors in New York City?

Catapult is pleased to present a series of writing classes, workshops, and intensive bootcamps, co-presented by Electric Literature. Spend your summer workshopping your writing in courses that past students have called “a significant life experience” and “everything I could have hoped to expect and more.”

All classes are held in our New York City offices and are open to writers of all levels looking to join a community of like-minded and talented individuals.

All classes are accepting applications now. And if you’re looking to win a free class, make sure to enter our monthly giveaway.

Fiction workshops include Tanwi Islam’s “This Must be the Place,” Sophie McManus’s “Discovery through Revision,” Kathleen Alcott’s “Choices and Concision in Short Fiction,” and Kristopher Jansma’s “The Three Layers of Character.”

Nonfiction workshops include Leigh Stein’s “Obsession as Engine,” Eleanor Kriseman’s “Self-Editing,” and Chelsea Hodson’s “The World According to Me.”

This summer’s bootcamp lineup features the return of Lena Valencia’s “Lit Mag Submission Process,” Seth Kaufman’s “How to Produce a Book and Sell It,” Daniel José Older’s “The Street is a Book,” and “Nailing Your Narrative,” co-taught by Chloe Caldwell and Ashley C. Ford.
