Writing the Novel-in-Verse [Joy McCullough-Carranza]
Introductory/Intermediate | Verse novels combine the opportunities of poetry with the narrative arc and character development of novels. The inviting rhythms and white space on the page are particularly appealing to younger or reluctant readers. Explore what makes a story suited for the format, and how to best use verse to tell your story. Come with an idea or a novel-in-progress; beginners are welcome. Work with prompts to generate new material, as well as revise existing work.
