Odyssey Writing Workshop 2018 • June 4-July 13

Saint Anselm College • Manchester, New Hampshire

Since its inception in 1996, Odyssey has become one of the most highly respected workshops for writers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror. Top authors, editors and agents have served as guests, and 59% of graduates go on to professional publication. The six-week workshop is a serious, demanding program for developing writers whose work is approaching publication quality and for published writers who want to improve their work.

Class meets for 4 1/2 hours each morning, 5 days/week. Half of class time is spent on lectures, writing exercises, and discussions; the other half is spent workshopping student stories. Students devote afternoons/evenings to writing, critiquing each other's work, and completing class assignments. Guest lecturers visit one day/week. College credit is available.

About Jeanne Cavelos
Odyssey founder Jeanne Cavelos was a senior editor at Bantam Doubleday Dell, where she won the World Fantasy Award. She is the bestselling author of 7 books from major publishers. She provides an advanced, comprehensive curriculum and the same unflinchingly honest, detailed feedback she provided as an editor. She works individually with students and charts their progress.

What Graduates Say
"I have three graduate degrees, but I can easily say that Jeanne Cavelos is the best instructor I've ever had. I came to Odyssey with specific ideas about what the problems were in my fiction. During the first week, I learned I had problems with my fiction that I didn't even realize I had. Jeanne, though, teaches us that those problems should not overwhelm fiction writers; instead, she teaches us how to solve them." —Brigitte McCray

"The first two stories I ever sold would not have been written without Odyssey." —Elaine Isaak
