Since its inception in 1996, the Odyssey Writing Workshop has become one of the most highly respected programs for writers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror in the world. Through an advanced curriculum, intensive focus, directed study, and detailed feedback, students gain a much deeper understanding of the elements of fiction writing and make major improvements in their work.
Odyssey’s online classes are rigorous and demanding, giving you the most for your time and effort. You should not apply unless you are ready to hear about the weaknesses in your writing and ready to work to overcome them. Classes provide a supportive yet challenging, energizing atmosphere.
