Novel Writing

  • I love novels – reading and writing them. This class offers the opportunity for you to learn tips and tricks to writing your very own novel, along with time to actually sit down and do the work.

    You need to bring your charged computer to class. There will be at least 40 minutes of dedicated writing time in class EVERY DAY (except the days we have visits from Real, Actual Published Authors). We will learn lots of awesome tricks. We will read great mentor texts (including a truly fabulous novel). And then, amigos, we will WRITE. Come ready.

    Some of the things we’ll produce in class that will aid in the actual novel-writing process are
    * outlines
    * character bibles
    * character arcs
    * tag-free dialog studies
    * character studies
    * location studies
    * query letter
    * elevator pitch


    Let’s write.
