Begin your novel this summer–and deepen your understanding of who you are as a writer. Together we’ll consider ten principles of fiction writing and closely consider examples from novelists who make use of those techniques in effective ways. Each class will include short exercises to help us envision our larger stories. We’ll discuss the process or writing a novel, ways to sustain our writing practice, and what it means to be a part of a literary community that feels nurturing to you and your work. Participants will leave with written feedback on their novel’s first chapter, six written pieces relevant to their book, and a deeper understanding of who they wish to be as writers.
