The Question Is the Hook, A Novel Writing Workshop with Kate Milliken


10 Sessions via Zoom

In stock

Once a week Tuesdays, 6:30 pm EDT - 8:30 pm EDT October 13 to December 15, 2020

Every story asks a question. Wanting the answer to the question is what motivates writers to write and it is that same wanting that keeps readers reading. By workshopping the opening chapter of our novels-in-progress, we will identify the central question of each story, energizing the author to write in service of their specific quandary and, in turn, sharpening their narrative hook.

Capacity: 14 students

This workshop will take place online via Zoom. Participants will receive instructions for access prior to the first session.
