Many writers start out with short stories, simply because they’re short. But it’s a lot easier to break into publishing with a good novel. Novel writing is also a more realistic way to make a living as a writer. But how does a writer keep from drowning? In this class, we will look at your first chapters. Then, using great novels as examples, we will touch on character, structure, and development. You will come away with feedback specific to you, as well as concrete methods to get you through your first draft—and further.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
