Novel Writing Workshop Summer 2024

June 16 – August 4, 2024
Take this workshop to start your novel or continue towards a solid first draft. Learn structure, storytelling devices, engage in weekly prompts to build scenes, and workshop your writing in a supportive environment.
We are innate storytellers, we just need to learn how to harness the stories we have within us onto the page.

Each week we’ll explore different aspects of storytelling. This is a hybrid workshop, half the work will be done online through modules and discussion groups, the group feedback workshopping will be done on Zoom every other Sunday at 9am Pacific Time on June 23, July 7, July 21, and August 4.

Previous students have acquired literary agents and made deals for publication.
Limited to 10 students, enrollment is open until full.

Registration is $395. To pay via credit card use this link.


I’ve taken creative writing classes with Tony DuShane for many years. Since working with Tony, I’ve signed with a literary agent and my novel is currently on submission with publishing houses. I highly recommend his classes. He’s a wonderful teacher and writer.

-Alex Thayer, Simon & Schuster author

Tony is a welcoming and supportive instructor whose San Francisco beatnik vibe and solid credentials make for a workshop experience where you are encouraged to run your fastest and jump your highest. I was more productive during his workshop than I’ve been in years, and recommend it to people who want to move ahead with their writing.
