Laying the Groundwork for Your Young Adult or Middle-Grade Novel [Joy McCullough]
Online | Intermediate / Advanced | Are you a plotter who wants to broaden your toolbox and add character development to your prep? Or a pantser who wants a stronger foundation to build on? In this class, set yourself up for drafting greatness by exploring different pre-writing techniques to develop characters, worlds, and plots. Brainstorm with classmates and instructor as you develop your ideas. Come to class with a project in its early stages or a manuscript that needs a massive overhaul and leave ready to dive into productive drafting.
This class takes place online via our partners at Wet Ink, and classes can be done at your own pace throughout the week.
