Ever get a great idea for a novel, but run out of steam by chapter three? Or felt like you wanted to try long-form fiction, but feel daunted by the length? Or maybe you’ve immaculately plotted and planned the whole thing, but you’re not sure what to do next. Join us for a half-day intensive examining the nuts and bolts of novel-writing—character, setting, plot, dialogue, and everything in between. For writers between 13 and 18.

You will learn:

  • How to create memorable, believable characters
  • How to plot and pace a novel
  • How to write convincing dialogue
  • How to get un-stuck when you hit a wall
  • How to polish your work and get it ready for submission
