Master Class

Take your writing and storytelling to the next level at Master Class 2020.

Join our stellar group of teachers on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 at ITW’s Master Class, a hands-on workshop for writers of all levels. Attendees submit the first 10 pages of their manuscript for critiquing. You’ll receive helpful feedback on how to take your writing to the next level—and you’ll spend time under the tutelage of one of our phenomenal instructors. It’s an intense but extremely helpful day. Each class, which is limited to 10 students, will allow you to work with a bestselling author on your manuscript in progress.

Our instructors this year include: Grant Blackwood, Karen Dionne, Robert Dugoni, Mark Greaney, Steven James, Gayle Lynds, Donald Maass and Hank Phillippi Ryan.

And of course we will again have our popular Best First Sentence Contest. So get to work on your opening line.


Space is very limited so sign up now. Hope to see you in NY this summer.
