01/18 Novel Writing I with T. Greenwood
Learn the basics of novel writing in eight weeks from T. Greenwood!
If you have always wanted to write a novel but didn’t know where to start, this workshop will help you understand the process of writing a novel so you can get started putting pen to paper. In this eight week workshop, we will focus on everything from generating ideas to developing characters to establishing point of view. We will touch on many elements of fiction (dialogue, scene, etc…), but the emphasis will be on discovering the writing process that works best for you. By the end of the session, participants will have completed their first chapters which will be workshopped by the group.
