If you have a great idea for a novel but haven't yet found the time-or the courage-to sit down and turn your idea into reality, this introductory "crash course" is for you. This class will help you begin to write the novel you want to write, and do so in a way that will draw your reader in from the very first sentence. You will review the building blocks that comprise quality fiction: plot, character development, narrator and point of view, dialogue, and voice. You will spend time writing in class, as well. This course prioritizes the creative process: learn how to tap into your imagination and how to write in a style that is authentically yours. Most of all, you’ll have fun with your classmates as we take this literary journey together! At the end of the day, we'll discuss the publishing process--agents, editors, and the book business, so you will know what happens after you've finished that first full draft.
