Core Programs Overview

Our core curriculum is a two-year sequence of programs that supports you through the drafting, revision, and submission of your memoir or novel for publication, with ongoing support after completion. Each of the core programs is co-facilitated by two Peer Artist Leaders––book inc writers who are also working on manuscripts alongside participants. To foster a tight-knit community, we provide you opportunities to engage regularly with other writers every two weeks on Zoom as well on on our private Slack workspace, where you can share your progress and challenges and find encouragement and inspiration as you draft or revise your book.

Testimonials

The support and encouragement at book inc’s Novel Incubator has made me see myself as a writer, helping me make a dream come true. It has also created a fire in me to write more novels.

Evelyn
Novel Incubator 2022
There’s no way I could have written an entire manuscript without this group, which provided accountability but most important — incredible support. It’s hard to fail with 10 other writers cheering you across the finish line.

Amy
Novel Incubator 2022
The story that has been living in my heart for so many years finally gets a chance to breathe on the page. I am so grateful.

Elisheva
Novel Incubator 2022
They say it takes a village. Well, I couldn’t find a village, but I did find Project Write Now and book inc. Their innovative classes provided the support and guidance of talented teachers and the opportunity to work alongside a welcoming community of fellow writers. I have now written a memoir, and in the Novel Incubator program, completed a full length novel. Encouraged by this I have submitted and had several short stories published in print and online. Who needs a village?
