Learn how to write a women’s fiction novel from top to bottom. In this fast-moving workshop, you’ll find out what elements you need to include in a well-crafted novel, from empathetic characters to solid plot lines.

At the top, we’ll cover how to outline, and make each scene more nail-biting than the last.

At the bottom, you’ll find out how to be an effective self-editor. The business of publishing will also be covered. Learn how to tell when you’re ready to seek an agent—and how to get one. We’ll discuss the kinds of self-promotion expected of authors these days.
