ONLINE Novel Writing 101
Have you been thinking about writing a novel but don’t know where to start? Have an idea but can’t get from concept to words on a page?
This 8-week course is designed to get you started on that book-length manuscript. Instruction will focus on characterization, voice, plot, setting, conflict etc. as they specifically apply to those critical first chapters and how to keep going. While this course includes no formal workshopping, students can expect to share their work as it relates to a variety of writing exercises. By the end of the course, students will have generated a strong and focused beginning to their manuscript and be well poised to continue through the middle and eventually to the end.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
