The One-on-one Tutorial will bring together Certificate students and accomplished fiction writers in one-on-one pairs for an intensive ten-week tutorial. After each student-instructor pair establishes the goals of the tutorial, and creates a schedule of deadlines and meeting times, the student will have the opportunity to get feedback on their manuscript, in order to finish and/or revise it. There is a 100,000 word limit for manuscripts submitted for the One-on-one Tutorial. Manuscripts exceeding this limit are subject to approval and additional fees will apply.
