How to Plan a Novel in 10 Days

All Levels | In this workshop, writers turn a spark into a foundation that will take them all the way through National Novel Writing Month. Whether you’re seasoned or a newb, a planner or a pantser, you’ll benefit from a stockpile of whimsy and anchors to get you past the initial adrenaline rush. Writers are introduced to bite-sized prep exercises and leave with a 10-day plan of strategies to accumulate inspiration, create actionable accountability systems, and develop potential characters and open-ended concepts that will keep them moving all month.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
