Building Your Young Adult Novel

Do you feel like you’re writing without a map? Creating great scenes and interesting characters but confused about where your story is going? With a special focus on plot and character, this class is for the student in any stage of working on a young adult novel. In-class activities will include use of the Hero’s Journey model, identification of central questions, and creation of a character web. This is an opportunity to work on the skeleton of your book instead of its flesh.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
