So You Want to Write a Novel: How to Get Started

October 5, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- Free – $65

Beginning a novel can feel like an overwhelming challenge. How do you know where a story really truly honestly starts or the best way to introduce readers to your fictionalized world? In this class, we’ll discuss what should be included in a novel’s opening, establishing the story world, selecting the perfect point of view, and creating character arcs that allow your characters to deepen and expand. We’ll also explore how (or if) you should outline, locking into a reasonable writing schedule, working with critique groups, and getting a rhythm in place that will help you finish your novel within the next year.
