Novella sends you a monthly writing prompt via our newsletter. The prompts are thematic in nature, ranging from contemporary topics to artistic inspiration, and encourage creative expression and self-exploration over reactionary work. 


You can respond to our prompt in whichever literary method you please: song, poem, short story, script, etc. We ask that you keep your work to 5 minutes in spoken length or 2 pages in written length. Members are invited to share their responses at our monthly gatherings in New York City. 


Each month, Novella hosts a salon in New York City where members can exchange and connect. 

Our salon begins with a 30-minute social mixer and is followed by a 30-minute breakout session where members discuss their work in groups. The evening concludes with a Selected Speaker presenting their written work, followed by a Q&A.
