George R.R. Martin Summer Intensive Writing Workshop

The George R.R. Martin Summer Intensive Writing Workshop is a seven-day writing intensive for mid-career journalists who have a story to tell in the creative realm and want to cross over into writing fictional prose. Medill is committed to identifying a diverse pool of talented, established journalists with an idea for a specific fictional project and immersing them in a nurturing and supportive environment filled with writing time, reflection, discussion and workshopping of works in progress and collegial interactions. We will provide the time, space, guidance and mentorship for these writers to produce exceptional creative works. GRRM Fellows will have the opportunity to learn from award-winning novelists and writing instructors. The aim is to have fellows arrive with an idea for a novel or work of fiction that they will write and workshop and leave with the foundation of solid pages or chapters.
