Program in Book Development
Take Your First Step Toward Your Certificate.
You’ve written the first draft of your book. Maybe even the second or third. Here's how you can take it to the next step.
If you are a prose writer, agents show interest, but ultimately pass. If you are a poet, you can’t seem to get to first place and publication. The pros know: when you get to that point, it’s time to take your manuscript apart and put it back together.
That’s where we come in. We’ll pair you with a senior editor from a major publishing house to help take your manuscript to the next level.
Designed for writers with a draft of book-length manuscript already completed, this special program pairs a writer with an editor from a major publishing house. Past editors have come from Henry Holt, Farrar Straus & Giroux, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Red Hen, Viking, Penguin and Riverhead.
Apply to the Book Development Program through the MFA Application process.
