Writing Your Novel in Eight Weeks

This event has only 2 space(s) left. If you continue and register more than 2 people (including yourself ), the whole group will be wait listed. Or, you can reduce the number of people you are registering to 2 to avoid being put on the waiting list.

Each November is National Novel Writing Month and many writers draft a novel in four weeks during NaNoWriMo. Imagine how much you might accomplish in twice the time. Instructor Kelly Dwyer will guide you through writing a plot outline, a character arc, and the main elements of your novel. Writers will share their work aloud each week in a supportive and stimulating workshop environment. Kelly will also lecture and lead discussions on such elements of the novel as plot, characterization, dialogue, and point of view. You will leave the course with a strong plot outline, a beginning, middle, and end, and from 20,000 to 60,000 words of a novel (depending on your goal and time commitment). Registration for this course is limited to twelve participants.
