12-Month Online Book Generators

Isn’t it time you transformed your ideas or handful of unfinished pages into a finished book?

At Catapult, we believe there’s a better—or at least less lonely—way to write a book. Our competitive 12-month writing courses are designed to help you generate and refine a submission-ready draft in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere. Alongside a group of talented peers and under the guidance of a published writer and accomplished mentor, spend a year thinking deeply about how to build your story from the ground up. We’ve taken the in-person workshop experience and brought it to writers all over the world, on a platform custom-designed for writing workshops that’s easy and fun to use.

Our yearlong generators are divided into three phases, each focusing on a different element of the writing process and building upon earlier lessons. Each phase features guest visitors—debut authors, seasoned writers, literary agents, and editors from big houses and small—whose visits serve to offer students a wealth of insights on how you can best write and publish your debut.

Writers graduate our 12-month generators with a substantial number of new pages, a better understanding of the literary marketplace, valuable connections, and productive and strategic work habits that will transform their writing lives moving forward.
