Have you always wanted to write a novel but didn’t know where to start? This workshop is designed for those who have never written a novel before – or for those who are looking for a strong foundation in the basic components of novel-writing. This workshop will help you understand the process of writing a novel so you can get started putting pen to paper. The workshop will focus on everything from generating ideas to developing characters to establishing point of view. Participants will discuss many elements of fiction (dialogue, scene, etc.) but the emphasis will be on discovering the writing process that works best for each writer. Participants should expect to spend 3-5 hours a week on work. Required Text: Hooked by Les Edgerton and Plot & Structure by James Scott Bell.
