Fiction is a balance of craft and imagination. Whether you have a hot idea for a novel, a work-in-progress, or a completed draft to polish and refine, this workshop with novelist Lucy Sanna will give you the skills needed to bring your novel to life. Compelling characters are at the heart of memorable fiction. We will learn to live through our protagonist’s senses and give her an arc to create as much tension on her journey as possible. Some novelists write by the seat of their pants and others diligently lay out the entire plot before writing the first sentence. Either way, writers get stuck. We’ll discuss ways to manage your book’s structure without painting yourself into a corner. Registration for this course is limted to twelve participants.
