Writing Your Way Into Your Novel

IMG_6608Next available class is Wednesday, August 30, 2:30-4:30 PM Pacific Time.

The process of novel-writing varies greatly, but one thing is always true: a butt must go into a chair and the words must be written. Come find out how to get past sticking points through a combination of lecture and writing exercises that will help you map out your course for navigating the sea of words and build a daily writing practice that will get you to the end of the book.

This class is aimed at someone either in the beginning or early processes of a novel; if you are further along than that, the First Pages Workshop is suggested instead.

Classes are taught online via Google hangouts and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required.

Cost: register by July 1, 2017 and the cost per class is $49. Otherwise the cost is $99 ($79 for former students).

To register for this class, mail me with the following details:

  • The email address that you use for Google stuff
  • Which class or classes and the dates
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, or some other means.

Upon receiving that, I will send you an invoice.

Important! Remember every class has several Plunkett scholarships for students who could not otherwise afford the cost. To apply for a Plunkett, mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less.

Notes and Testimonials

“Before I felt like I had a box with half the ingredients for a meal, and a cookbook picture of the finished product. Now I feel like I’ve gotten an outline of the recipe, and someone has mercifully told me where to find a grocery store and that I can add vegetables.” – Frances Rowat
