Bookends is a non-credit intensive to help writers turn their full-length manuscripts into polished form. It entails one novel/one mentor/one year – with option of financial assistance based on need. As a BookEnds fellow, you’ll spend a year writing, revising, and editing your manuscript alongside a small cohort of talented fiction writers with promising novel drafts. You’ll dive deep into your characters’ worlds using the unique BookEnds methodology and interrogatory techniques, with mentors such as Meg Wolitzer, Christina Baker Kline, Karen E. Bender and Paul Harding to guide you along the way.
