How Not to Write a Novel

All Levels. Based on the hugely useful and wickedly funny book by the same name, this class is for the beginning novelist or those looking to revise their first draft. We will workshop your pages, learn the classic missteps to avoid, and examine the sound advice of agents and editors. Be prepared to generate better, stronger, characters, plot, and scenes as you throw out tired ideas, kill all mediocrity, and get out of your own way.
