Revising with E.M. Forster’s Aspects of the Novel

Intermediate | So you have a first draft of the novel. Congratulations! Now you need to make it better—but how? Where do you start? We’ll use E.M. Forster’s 1927 classic Aspects of the Novel to discuss how one might go about tackling such a project. His ‘aspects’ are divided into The Story, People, The Plot, Fantasy, Prophecy, and Pattern and Rhythm; these will provide guideposts in our discussion.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
