Fantasy & Sci-Fi Novel Workshop
Genres: Fiction, Young Adult/Children's Lit, Novel
Open to all levels
Writers will turn in chapters of their novels in a workshop-style format. Everyone will learn how to constructively critique and discuss the submitted work as a group, with an eye toward helping the author strengthen their writing while supporting them in their creative efforts. While we will also generate some writing in class through prompts and exercises, the focus will be the workshop. This class is for adults writing for an adult or young adult audience.
