Drusilla’s back for another popular 2-Part Class!

Strong characters, a compelling plot and a powerful first chapter are the three essentials of a commercial novel.

In this two part class, Drusilla Campbell will take your plot apart and help you put it back together again with emphasis on the through line, causality, and narrative drive.

This class is intended for beginning and experienced writers currently working on or developing a project
