Writing a novel often feels like you are scaling a mountain with no peak. Your climbing gear has worn itself out leaving you with scraped knees and elbows. In this course, we will approach our work with kindness and open-heartedness. Students will workshop their pages on a weekly basis and together we will hold discussions about character development, dialogue, narrative drive and pacing, point of view, structure, and anything else that is a pressing issue within the work. Come with a willingness to learn what your strengths and weaknesses are and how to use that vital knowledge to your advantage. Over the course of the eight weeks, we will laugh, play and have fun within our work as we accomplish more with joy than with grief.

Capacity: 12
